This is a unique cyanotype or Prussian blueprint. Prussian blue is an introspective colour which takes this garland image from observed reality to a place of contemplation.
The selected botanicals have been gathered, arranged and exposed to light on a coated Japanese paper, Tosho Shi .The chosen plants, Thyme, Honesty, Wild Geranium and Mind Your Own Business reflect some of the qualities of a particular nature loving person. The whole process of picking flowers in the early morning, drawing them into an arrangement, exposing to light and washing and drying feels rhythmic and connected to the natural world. A hands-on process from start to finish, this image is an expression of healing after loss.
