Original circular mixed media gold leaf cyanotype.
Hand finished with 24ct gold 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.
Reflections In Heaven Study 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 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 24ct gold leaf.
