Art Description

Photography: Cyanotype, Contact Print, Blueprint, Gold Leaf, Handmade Paper on Paper, Other.

Original set of 2 framed, circular mixed media gold leaf cyanotypes.
Hand-brush coated.
Hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
Handprinted on handmade recycled 100% cotton rag paper.

This duo of artworks is a celebration of friendship, the solidarity of sisterhood and the joys of being a woman.

Lunar Ladies I and II (Duo) were created by photographing a hand-cut collages of female portraitures and photographs of the surface of the moon. The digital negatives were then contact printed onto handmade, hand shaped circular paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.

Dimensions - Each cyanotype is 300mm diameter (unframed) 385mm diameter (framed) x 30mm frame depth x 18mm frame face. The Frames can be hung together or separately.

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

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

Framing - This artwork is sold framed. Float mounted in a bespoke, handmade medium sized circular frame. The frame is a deep box frame, museum grade, UV protected, anti reflective glass fronted and with a smooth black 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 enables me to be at one with each piece I create.
