DESCRIPTION

This work was inspired by the Greek mythological story of the transformation of Philomela into a nightingale.

TECHNIQUE

Gilded Transformation (Square) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of nude portraiture and an illustration of a nightingale. The digital negative was then contact printed onto 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 and hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
