Inspiration
This artwork title was inspired by Rene Magritte's surrealist painting 'The Treachery Of Images,' playing on the surrealist notion that things are not always what they seem.

Inspired by the Greek goddess Gaia (Mother Nature). She is the personification of the entire Earth's ecosystem, working to achieve and maintain harmony, wholeness and balance within the environment. Mother Nature heals, nurtures and supports all life on this planet. This is a homage to the ultimate life giving goddess, celebrating our connection with the environment, the harmony, balance and continuity of Life on Earth.

Technique
Ceci N'est Pas One Pipe was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of vintage portraiture, planet like surfaces from chemigram paintings, butterflies and botanicals. The chemigram paintings are created using typically feminine beauty products painted onto photographic film and paper and then exposed to light and chemical baths. The resulting images are galaxy-like swirling universes. 

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours. Once fixed the 24-carat gold leaf is hand applied.
