Framed, original circular cyanotype and gum bichromate overprint. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with burnt sienna gum bichromate overprint. Handprinted on hand shaped bisque fired porcelain disk. This artwork was inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's gothic novel Frankenstein, the popular scientific theories of the time and the relationships between electricity, reanimation and life and death states. Mary's Modern Prometheus (Study On Porcelain) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture, hand printed paper negatives of petri dish cultures and microscopic cell structures and an illustration of a fox skull. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand shaped, bisque fired porcelain disk brush coated with cyanotype chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed and soaked for 3-4 weeks to develop a pale cyan blue colour, air dried and then the process repeated with a gum bichromate over printed layer. 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. The circular frame was handcrafted to house the float mounted piece.

I am an internationally recognised, London based fine artist, photographer and mixed-media printmaker. Best known for my circular cyanotypes I embrace and develop innovative ways of reworking photographic images through collage and mixed-media print techniques, and by blending science, darkroom alchemy and art. My work explores the boundless possibilities of image production in the age of modern printmaking with an aim to reinvent, recycle, redefine, experiment and preserve. Female empowerment, natural history and science are recurring themes across the work, constructing visual narratives from the lives of extraordinary, trailblazing women - celebrating their achievements, uncovering their struggles and telling the stories of these often unsung heroes. "I hope people are empowered by the story behind each piece and that the subject matter ignites imaginations and a curiosity to delve deeper. The key emotion is to feel connected - connected to the story, the techniques and the science behind the work, and to be connected to the elements of nature I introduce to explore human experience and the relationship between each of us, and the world we live in." Chloe McCarrick exhibits internationally.
