This work was inspired by Janus, the ancient Roman God of new beginnings. Looking to the past and the future with two faces, it is a representation of duality, transition and time.
Circular Musings In Heaven was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture and the surface textures of chemigrams. 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, pressed dry and then hand finished with 22ct yellow gold leaf.
