Exhibition News: Capturing Light In a Castle

PURPLE ALIUM_EAGLE HOUSE

 

Last November, one of my Anthotypes was included in an exhibition at Lewes Castle museum. Entitled Captured Light, it featured work by a small group of contemporary artists who use early photographic processes.On this occasion, so that my print would not fade, it was framed with UV reflecting glass. For extra protection, a little felt flap was placed in front that viewers were invited to lift so that they could view the image.

Here’s a photograph of the print: an Anthotype featuring Eagle House at Painswick Rococo Garden. It was made with colour extracted from Purple Alium Flowers grown in the Exedra Garden. In “the flesh” the colour of the print is a deliciously murcurial green-blue. It’s impossible to pin down these beautiful dyes with digital ink!
