Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by mathematician, writer and 'First Lady' of computer programming Ada Lovelace. A visionary who gave us a first glimpse of the idea of universal computation, Lovelace was drawn to abstract ways of thinking using ‘poetical science.’ Her thwarted potential, passion and imaginative intuition, have made her a powerful symbol for modern women in technology.

Technique
Flyology (The Language Of Lovelace) SQ was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture, photographs of an antique tin toy horse and photograms of insect wings.

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours. Once the image is fixed it is hand finished with 24-carat gold leaf.

Dimensions
Unframed:  205mm x 205mm

Mount
We use float mounting for all of our framed cyanotypes. The artwork floats above a snow-white mount board, showcasing the paper texture and deckled edging.

Framing

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. They prime and sand the wooden frame before spraying black or white soft-sheen paint to achieve the highest quality finish. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard. 

If you would like a bespoke frame, please get in touch to discuss alternative colours, gilding and glazing options.
