About

Two Fatsia Seed Heads is a unique work in a series of series of seven works from Angela Easterling.

Original Artwork

This is a unique artwork. Cyanotpye on 300gsm hand coated watercolour paper. Signed by the artist.

Method

The cyanotype, or blueprint process was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel. From 1843 Anna Atkins, the first female photographer, created a series of beautiful cyanotype photograms including ferns and algae. Easterling has been inspired by this history to create a series of botanical cyanotypes. No camera was used, rather the image is exposed in the sun. Each image is unique.

As Easterling says: “When combined with contemporary chemicals the plant materials generate their own particular aura of colour. There are no negatives and so reprints cannot be made. Each image is unique.”
