This artwork was inspired by the Greek story of Philomela's transformation into a nightingale. A tale of growth, strength, reflection and female empowerment.
Transformation Of Philomela (Small) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture, hand illustrations of birds and chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade 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 hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
