This work was inspired by Rene Magritte's surrealist painting 'The Treachery Of Images.'
Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe (Square) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of vintage portraiture, hand illustrations of botanical specimens, butterflies and surface textures from chemigrams and cellscapes. 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 then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
