This artwork was inspired by Janus, the Roman God of all beginnings, symbolised by two faces looking both to the future and to the past.
Reflections in Heaven (The Introspection Of Janus) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of portraiture and surface texture from handmade chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand shaped 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 hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
