OVERVIEW

Original mixed media Gold leaf cyanotype. 
Hand-brush coated.
Hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.  
Handprinted on Frogmore Heritage Archival Paper.

DESCRIPTION

This work was inspired by Rene Magritte's surrealist painting 'The Treachery Of Images.'

TECHNIQUE

Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of vintage portraiture, planets, butterflies and botanicals. The large scale 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, dried and then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
