This artwork was inspired by Amelia Earhart, the pioneering female aviator and advocate for gender equality and defying cultural norms.

Circular Amelia In Copper XL was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture and hand drawn illustrations of birds. The large scale negative was then contact printed onto hand made xl circular paper, brush coated with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to natural daylight, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and then hand finished with pure Italian copper leaf.

Dimensions - 550mm diameter (unframed) 700mm diameter (framed) x 30mm frame depth x 18mm frame face.

Paper - Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper: 320gsm / 100% Cotton Rag / Recycled / Acid Free / PH Neutral / Rough

Mount - It is recommended to keep this piece float mounted when framing.

Framing - This artwork is sold framed.

Each frame is hand crafted to house the piece. Float mounted in a bespoke, handmade XL circular frame. The frame is a deep box frame, museum grade, anti reflective, UV protected glass fronted and with a smooth white finish.

This is taken from a series of cyanotypes based on females in history and mythology. Ones who particularly inspire me, deserve to be recognised and celebrated as powerful figures in time.

I want to visually tell a story with each piece to celebrate the lives of these amazing women using portraiture, symbolism and surrealism.

I expose all my pieces in natural light for up to a couple of weeks. Printing in all weather conditions, doing everything by eye and in the most organic way possible, this enable me to be at one with each piece I create.
