Lumens of Paradise2020 - 2021
Lumens of Paradise is a limited edition series of ten individual contact photograms, utilising found flora and materials in and around the Paradise Works artist studio building and outdoor area. The items have been foraged alongside fellow studio holders and local residents, and represent an echo of our surroundings both past and present.
Because each print is exposed to sunlight at a different angle, length of time and time of day. The process involved using out of date c-type paper and are set with alternative chemical products to reduce the work's environmental impact and honour the ethos of the project. Therefore each image produced resulted in different colours, tones and texture. Each lumen print has been scanned and printed to offer two limited editions, each presented alongside an artist note, which lists the dates of the foraging and items sourced to each individual print.
This was an opportunity by Paradise Works as part of their multiple shops fundraising scheme. https://www.paradise-works.com/multiples/lumens-of-paradise-works
