Large Water Cyanotype Triptych

1,500.00

The large water triptych adds a whole window to any environment and becomes a central meditative point. The cyanotypes* are printed on heavy 140lb handmade Arches watercolor paper. These prints will come as shown unframed and you can see the white photographic framing boarder. When we frame these pieces we like to bring it up to the edge of the art and it really takes you in the piece vs. looking at a photo. We leave this option up to you. You can look at how it looks framed. Ask us for framing if you want this piece framed up--pricing is for artwork only. Each panel measures approximately 32" x 50" . Below is a small blurb of the cyanotype process:

The cyanotype process was developed by scientist and astronomer John
Herschel in 1842. The process was created only three years after
photography was invented. This process instead of using silver like
typical photography uses iron. The iron ‘salt’ solutions are combined
and coated on watercolor paper in a dark room and allowed to dry. When
a negative or plant material is placed on the paper it becomes a film
negative. The uncovered areas are exposed to UV light and cause a
reaction to the iron solution reducing it chemically to a deep
Prussian blue. The print is then washed and the covered dark areas on
the negative create the white and the exposed become deep blue. It is
a simple and natural process.
