Legacy In Blue2016
This series of small cyanotypes is part of the larger body of work, Pot of Gold.
Cyan blue is the colour of the past in preparation for the future. It represents permanence and references opportunity. It does not exist in the present; already obsolete, it is a mark of absence and sometimes even fiction.
The origin of the negatives is unknown; they have been edited, re-imagined and reconstructed as cyanotypes. This series has no order, it can be arranged and rearranged allowing the legacy to quietly shift.
This work was made possible with the support of The Banff Centre for the Arts and the Peter MacKendrick Endowment Fund for Visual Artists.
Cyanotypes from mid-twentieth century negatives and hand stitching.
