DESCRIPTION

This artwork was inspired by Amelia Earhart, the pioneering female aviator and advocate for gender equality and defying cultural norms.
 

TECHNIQUE

Bust Of Amelia Over Blue Starry Skies 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 and pressed driedthen hand finished with variegated zinc leaf. Each zinc leaf is treated with a chemical acid wash to create a beautiful tonal pattern of turquoise, green and blue.
