"Jasmine I" is a cyanotype artwork that captures the shadows of flowers both wild and cultivated, picked on a sunny afternoon in my sister's garden...
The ghostly shadows of peony and jasmine flowers fall delicately on the blue page.
The artwork is approx. A4, and is sold unframed.
Why not add a magnetic print hanger?
"Jasmine I" (A4 cyanotype)
Cyanotype is a photographic technique dating back to the 1800s - it is a method of capturing shadows on a light-sensitive page: when sunlight/UV light is introduced, areas of shadow remain the white of the page, and areas touched by the light undergo a chemical reaction, transforming into beautiful shades of blue once washed.
Much like how flowers of the same variety grow in their own unique ways, cyanotypes are all unique, even when created in the same way, with the same tools - that's the magic of the cameraless photography process, it's always a bit of a surprise outcome, and that's why I love it!
It is normal for these artworks to incur some small dents along the way due to the washing/processing techniques; these may have been cut off, so your print will be slightly smaller than A4/A3, or they may have been left in situ as part of the character and history of the piece. Every effort is made to ensure the best outcome for each artwork.
