Original circular mixed media gold leaf cyanotype. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with 24ct gold leaf. Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper.
This artwork was inspired by anthropomorphism, identity, the evolution of linguistic power and communication and Charles Darwin's 'The Origin Of The Species.' A depiction of both public and private faces and in what means we choose to reveal them or masquerade behind them.
Masquerading Merops In Gold Study (No2) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of photographic portraiture, hand illustrations of a merops (bee eating bird) and surface textures from a chemigram. 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 details.
