With these cyanotype prints, I wanted to think about sequencing and repetition. During lockdown Andrew and I shared a lot of music - which forms the playlist in the gallery space. I felt that creating cyanotypes, which are same but different plays into the idea of playing the same note but in a different key. Also with Jazz there is there is freestyle which is very experimental but at the same time, the musicians are highly skilled - what they play may sound random but there is order within the disorder.. Making cyanotypes is an alchemical process, turning the yellow chemical to blue under sunlight, in much the same way that a green colour indigo dyed fabric turns blue in sunlight.
