Process

Water and light are the source of this work. Instead of painting the paper with coloured pigments I use a camera-less photography known as Cyanotype. I coat the paper, focusing on the weights and layouts of the brush strokes, wait for the paper to dry in a darkroom and then take it outside for exposure to the sun. During the exposure process I use the sun and water to paint with, carefully holding the paper and sun allowing the water to flow across the piece and capture an image that reflects these elements. Once exposed I then manipulate the images with perforations to bring depth and a greater sense of texture to the piece. The experience is contemplative and soothing, and the result is to create a piece that invokes these similar feelings in the viewer.
