Framed, original, circular mixed media cyanotype.
Hand finished with a deckled edge.
Handprinted on handmade recycled cotton rag paper.
This work was inspired by Oscar Wilde's novel 'The Picture Of Dorian Gray.' The protagonists character has ageless beauty and is filled with moral duplicity. Butterflies are seen as the personification of a person's soul, the Marbled White is distinctive, attractive and unmistakable, much like the chief character.
Portrait Study Of Dorian Gray (XSmall) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of a vintage portrait of Oscar Wilde with a hand printed pinhole photograph and an illustration of a Marbled White Butterfly. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade, hand shaped paper that had been brush coated with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour and then pressed dry.
