Original mixed media zinc leaf circular cyanotype. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with variegated zinc leaf. Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper.
This artwork was inspired by Greek mythology, the story of Philomela's transformation into a nightingale, the strength of feminine power, and the study of the night sky. It is a celebration of the human body.
Philomela Under The Stars XL was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of portraiture and illustrations of birds combined with the surface textures from a photogram.The large scale digital negative was then contact printed onto 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 variegated zinc leaf.
