I have two new cyanotype prints in the SSA 30 x 30 online exhibition

Study I & Study II

Cyanotpyes, (often called “blueprint”) are created by a a process whereby specially mixed chemical ink is brushed onto the paper. I create the image by laying carefully chosen botanical specimens collected here on the Isle of Lewis onto the paper.

The paper is then exposed under direct Hebridean sunlight. When the image is submerged in water, it turns the paper a cyan blue colour, leaving an imprint of the specimens in much the same way as an experience may leave an imprint in our consciousness, as a memory.

I hope you enjoy these works. All work for sale
