Collage that has taken on dimensionality. Cyanotype is a favorite process of mine, and I made the cyanotype versions of this image from a negative of a photograph that I had taken and hand developed in the dark room. This piece also includes a gel medium transfer from the D.H. Lawrence book Women in Love which I only work with as collage material and refuse to read. I love how mysterious and open the text can be in my work while keeping the whole story a secret from myself.
