Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by the beloved Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Together they took literary conventions of the Victorian period and radically reshaped them, pushing back at the limits of the world. These subversive sisters' stories transcend their time and still resonate with modern audiences of all ages. 

Technique
The Three Sisters On The Moor was created by constructing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture and a photogram from an antique microscopic slide of TB cells, combined with surface textures of chemigrams. 

After coating the handmade 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. Once fixed the artwork is hand finished with marbled green zinc leaf.

Dimensions
Unframed:  300mm diameter
Framed:      385mm diameter x 30mm depth x 18mm face

Paper

Mount

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. They prime and sand the wooden frame before spraying black or white soft-sheen paint to achieve the highest quality finish. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard.
