Inspiration
This artwork is a feminine take on the ancient Roman God of new beginnings. Looking to the past and the future with two faces, it is a representation of self-reflection, transition, growth and time. A depiction of both public and private faces and in what means we choose to reveal them.

Technique
Musings In Heaven Study was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and hand-printed surface textures from chemigrams. 

After coating the 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.
