Original mixed media copper leaf cyanotype.
Hand finished with pure Italian copper leaf.

This work was inspired by Janus, the ancient Roman God of new beginnings. Looking to the past and the future with two faces, it is a representation of duality, transition and a reflection of time and space.
Pondering Over Mars (Reflections In Heaven) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage. 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, dried and then hand finished with pure Italian copper leaf.
