Art Description

Photography: cyanotype, contact print, collage, handmade paper, photography on Paper, Other.

Framed original, copper cyanotype.
Hand-brush coated.
Hand finished with a chemical painted and heat treated copper leaf..
Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper.

This artwork was inspired by Greek mythological winged creatures, Sirens and Harpies. These bird- human hybrids are found in The Odyssey and The Seventh Circle in Dante's Inferno.

Siren Songs At Sunset was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, and hand illustrated birds to create the dress. The large digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made paper that had been brush coated with light sensitive chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to daylight, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and hand finished with chemical painted and heat treated copper leaf.

Dimensions - 300mm diameter (unframed) 385mm 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 float mount this piece when framing.

Framing - This artwork is sold framed.

Frames are handmade to house the piece. Float mounted in a bespoke, handmade medium sized circular frame. The frame is a deep box frame, museum grade, anti reflective, UV protected 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.
