Artwork Description:

Title: Topsy Turvy

A print of an original cyanotype artwork. The image was taken digitally then manipulated on the computer to create a photo negative, which I used to create the cyanotype.

The image is looking out through a window of a beautiful house in Massachusetts, filled to the brim with treasures. I just loved the still life image with upside down tree reflections in the glass spheres.

I find creating a cyanotype images gives the photograph more depth and a timeless, ethereal quality.

Cyanotype is an alternative (camera-less) photographic process using an iron-based chemical solution that is sensitive to UV light. Objects and photo negatives are placed on the coated surface and exposed to sunlight or artificial UV light source to create beautiful and ephemeral images.

Artist Bio:
Emily is a fine artist with a special interest in the traditional photography process of cyanotype, making iconic blue images from her own photographs and pressed botanicals.

With her camera, Emily enjoys capturing the beauty in nature through the seasons, and can be found exploring abandoned buildings and picking flowers and leaves to press for her art. As well as taking inspiration from nature, she also explores memory and nostalgia in her work.
