Original gold cyanotype.
Finished with 24-carat gold leaf.
Printed on handmade recycled cotton rag paper. 

This artwork was inspired by respected academic and tragic heroine Hypatia. One of the last great thinkers of ancient Alexandria, she was one of the first women to study and teach mathematics, philosophy and astronomy. Widely known for her love of learning and public speaking, her reputation as a great female scholar, honoured astronomer and prominent thinker, transformed Hypatia into a feminist icon and empowering role model for female intellectuals in modern times.

 

Hypatia Studies The Stars In Gold XS was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture, photograms of a honeycomb and hand printed chemigrams to create the planetary structures. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made circular paper that had been brush coated 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.
