Framed original cyanotype on conservation quality 300gsm watercolour paper, with gold metal leaf detail. Presented in a white conservation quality mount with white wooden frame.
Keepsake celebrates the beauty and fragility of the flora of wildflower meadows. Meadows are an intrinsic part of the UK’s natural and cultural heritage but now only a tiny fraction of them survive. They are a reminder of the former abundance of wildflowers in the farmed countryside. The cyanotype process was developed in the mid 1800’s when wildflower meadows were abundant. By using this process to make work about wildflower meadows today I am reaching back to the past in order to record the present and preserve it for the future. If you would like to know more I have written about the cyanotype process on my blog.
The small details in gold metal leaf emphasise the preciousness of the meadow plants.
