Original circular mixed media cyanotype. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with a deckled edge. Handprinted on handmade recycled 100% cotton rag paper.
This artwork is inspired by Sylvia Plath and her Bee Sequence poems found in 'Ariel,' she considered this to be her best work.
The Mile Long Body Of Meissen (Circular) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of fashion portraiture and photograms of pressed linaria blossoms and bees. The digital negative was 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.
