DESCRIPTION

This artwork was inspired by the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite. Symbolised by intertwined roses and myrtles, sparrows and a human heart.
  

TECHNIQUE

Aphrodite Over Mars was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female nude portraiture, hand illustrations of flowers, birds and a heart. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade 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, dried and hand finished with Italian copper leaf.
