original, one of a kind artwork

The Cyanotype process is  an alternative  photograaphic process invented in  the 18th century  .  I placed my jellyfish handwoven from fishing line onto recycled  paper  painted with  the photo sensitive cyanotype chemistry. The paper turns a beautiful blue, and the spirit  of   the woven object is captured.   Plant pigments from Eucalypts (gum leaves)   are  painted and poured around   the blue  so as to imitate and celebrate  the colours of the  sea and coastline in my favourite places.  From the oranges and reds of the rock pools and  cliffs to the sparkling blues of the sea and sky. Weaving the tragic tale of sea life in the plastic age.  Lamenting the impact of marine debris upon remote coastal communities and landscapes .
