Art Description

Photography: Cyanotype, Copper Leaf, Handmade Paper, Contact Print, Collage on Paper, Other.

Framed original, XL copper leaf cyanotype.
Hand-brush coated,
Hand finished with chemical treated Italian copper leaf.
Handprinted on handmade 100% recycled cotton rag paper.

This artwork was inspired by Marie Curie, double Nobel Prize winner who changed the world with her pioneering work on studying radioactivity and research into cancer treatments. Symbolised here by cells and butterflies, they represent endurance, change, hope and life cycles.

Nobel Marie XL was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, a blue morpho butterfly and hand illustrations of cells. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade circular paper, brush coated 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 Italian copper leaf, treated with a chemical wash and heated before applying.

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 enables me to be at one with each piece I create.
