Title: “Celebration”


Description: My artwork shows some dancing forms. I have used mainly blue as it is the symbol of water and coolness which are the basic necessities of life. It is calming and I find blue as the natural color from the blue sky. I even used some hues of blue as they are associated with intelligence, stability and unity.

Title: “A Mirror”


Description: The work is made with a photogram on watercolor paper. The main thing about every artist is that we all carefully observe the things that surround us. Our sensitivity allows us to penetrate deeply into matter. Our attempts to better understand the world and ourselves change us visually. Who are we? The human face says it all. Reflects the contents of our mind and heart.

Artist: Christelle Camus

Title: “The Escape”


Description: A video of starlings was projected on a bedspread and photographed. An internegative was then made from the photo and used on this page to create a cyanotype print. The idea here is to oppose the theme of the page ("the trap manufacturers") and the shadows of birds flying away.

Title: “Woodland Walks”


Description: This is a botanical photogram on A3 watercolour paper celebrating local late summer plant life found on numerous woodland walks.

Wet cyanotype process with spray of cider vinegar, drops of lemon juice and layer of soap bubbles before exposing in late summer sunlight for over 3 hours.

Inspiration for this image is to acknowledge the luxury of being able to spend time getting lost in nature and for me particularly wandering through woodlands. It somehow always magically makes things lighter, clearer, simpler.

Title: “Snakerail Winter Structure #20"


Description: I shot this image from the north border fence on my property in winter to capture the blue shadows on the white snow with the intent to print as cyanotype. The pioneer settler fence intrigued me with its beauty and with its historical record of local history and the human need to delineate boundaries and borders for ownership and security. I printed digital, high contrast, transparency negatives as mirror images to contact print on BFK Rives paper. The mirror image was to provoke an enlightened symbol of the structure.

Title: "Bible: 2022"


Description: "Bible: 2022" is part of my work in an ongoing writers/artists collaborative related to the theme of Photosynthesis. With what we have come to understand about our world, I think we require a new "good book" to guide us. I decided to try printing on pages of an old book (about the Bible) to see what the results might be. I was pleased with this.
