DESCRIPTION

This artwork was inspired by the exploration of gender equality and women's empowerment in modern society.
  

TECHNIQUE

Circular Femme Fatale was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of vintage portraiture hand illustrations of birds and chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand shaped circular 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 Italian copper leaf that's been treated with an oxidisation and acid wash before applying.
