I’ve only recently begun to learn about cyanotype, which is photographic printing process that creates a cyan-blue print. Photosensitive solution is applied to a surface (such as paper or fabric), and left to dry in a dark place. Based on the intensity of the ingredients in a solution, different tones of blues can be acheived. Casey Robert’s work experiments with this process, using it as an conceptual element of her work. He writes:
My work illustrates a fantastic landscape. It represents nature’s subtle way of dealing with the peculiar aspects in the relationship with mankind. A giant glow-in-the-dark heart, or a pile of precious gems tells us that we are loved, just as blood squirting from an oak tree trunk says, all is not well. I am inspired by my conversation with the landscape, I imagine long monologues when pine forests make me laugh and mountains test my patience.
