TINT-ART features giclee prints of Photograms from his ‘Collection of Cyanotypes with plant elements’, 24″ x 18″ taken between 1990-2002.
Photograms are the pictorial result of the cyanotype process, a technique that creates unique images, each made by the plant’s natural materials. The plant is placed onto a pre-prepared sheet of watercolour paper. The image is drawn out of the plant through the light from the sun, and permanently fixed by the simple process of being washed in water – hence the term ‘camera-less photography’. The flower petals leave a trace, a unique deposit, on the paper. The final result contains the essence of each plant, displayed in rich tones of blue, creating a contemplative work of art.
