This artwork was inspired by anthropomorphism, the evolution of communication and linguistic power, convergent evolution in the animal kingdom and mimicry.
Convergent Camouflage (Golden Terraforming) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of nude portraiture, illustrations of birds and topography of the world. 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 24ct gold leaf.
