Original mixed media cyanotype. Hand brush coated.
Mounted. Handprinted on Arches Aquarelle watercolour paper.
This artwork was inspired by the study of Lepidoptera, the evolution of living things, storytelling and the study of science.
Give Me Wings was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of vintage portraiture and illustrations of butterflies and moths . The digital negative was then contact printed onto 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.
