Title: "Cream for your tea, Nana?"


Description: Reminiscent of an illustration from a children's story book, the figure's pose elicits excitement. A liquid is being poured (in an unusual pattern) from a small pitcher. Fireflies seem to be swirling about the child's head.

Behind the scenes: I gathered my grandmother's silver creamer, a string of faux pearls strung on wire, and a long piece of velvet ribbon. I wore a bathing suit, wrapped the pearls around my head, quickly laid the ribbon out in a whimsical pattern, and popped down on an oversized sheet of prepared mulberry paper that had been laid out in the sun. It was a hot summer day, so the exposure only took about 5 minutes.



 


Artist: Kim Webb

Title: "Blue Spirit"


Description: 11 x 14" cyanotype on mixed media paper. The earth and I cried together heavily and extensively on the evening of July 21, 2022 in Athens Ohio. As one, the earth and I mourned the heartbreaking sorrow of the upcoming departure of my Grandmother's human form. I felt held. The sky lit up for hours from three directions with the most astonishing show of lightning. I created this cyanotype from a digital negative and positive transparency of a captured bolt of lightning from that evening.

Title: " Maple Leaves Under Water"


Description: I'm still experimenting and become 'enlightened' with every new experiment.

I feel it was a simple piece but so affective. Less is more.

Title: "A”


Description: This is a calligraphic, cyanotyped image using a large calligraphy brush to paint the cyanotype fluid directly on to a sheet of A4 watercolour paper. Classical A+B chemistry. Exposed to sunlight for 15 minutes and then washed. The image is 202mm high, 8 inches.


Artists Statement:The letter A, being the first letter of the Latin Alphabet, symbolises the development of the alphabet, without which literature and science would not have developed as they are today and without which the enlightenment in Western culture during the 18th century would not have developed. The letter A also reminds me of Anna Atkins and her pioneering work ‘British Algae’ as well as being the initial letter of Australia, where I live, and of America, where I am sending this image to celebrate World Cyanotype Day 2022.
