Original, circular mixed media, copper leaf cyanotype. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with variegated Italian copper leaf. Handprinted on handmade 100% recycled cotton rag paper.
This artwork was inspired by Amelia Earhart, the pioneering female aviator and advocate for gender equality and defying cultural norms.
Bust of Amelia (Over The Setting Sun) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of fashion portraiture and illustrations of birds. 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.
