Original gold cyanotype. Finished with 24 carat gold leaf. Printed on handmade recycled cotton rag paper.
This artwork was inspired by Cecilia Helena Payne-Gaposchkin, a pioneering astrophysicist and probably the most eminent women astronomers of all time. Payne’s discovery deriving true cosmic abundance of elements from stellar spectra profoundly changed what we know about the universe, and her work began a revolution in astrophysics.
Stellar Atmospheres (Study In Gold) wascreated by constructing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, photograms of antique glass slides of stars and hand printed surface textures of chemigrams. The large scale digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made paper, 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 24 carat gold leaf.
