DESCRIPTION

This artwork was inspired by Greek mythology, the story of Philomela's transformation into a nightingale, the strength of feminine power, and the planet Venus. It is a celebration of the human body. 

TECHNIQUE

The Transformation of Philomela over Venus was created by photographing a hand-cut collage that had been combined with the surface textures from a photogram. 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 before being hand-finished with 24ct gold leaf.
