Original circular mixed media copper leaf cyanotype with two-layer gum bichromate overprint. 
Hand-brush coated.
Hand finished with Italian copper leaf.
Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper.  

This work was inspired by Janus, the ancient Roman God of new beginnings. Looking to the past and the future with two faces, it is a representation of duality, transition, growth and time.

 

Celestial Contemplation (Of The Cosmos) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture and the surface textures of chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade, hand shaped paper that had been brush coated with light sensitive cyanotype 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 coated with gum bichromate chemicals and pigments. This was exposed to daylight again and the process repeated two more times to create a three layer coloured print. It was then hand finished with Italian copper leaf.
