Having A Play

I started this piece a few weeks ago. It’s for an exhibition, “A Victorian Tapestri” which starts on September the 25th.  I cut the 12 pieces of lovely Somerset Velvet paper from a vintage pattern for a Victorian corset. I will be coating each piece with an image in cyanotype, an archaic Victorian form of photography invented by John Hershel. The paper cannot be sewn to make up a corset so I intend to attach the pieces to each other with eyelets and ribbon.

I laid the pieces out on the floor in sequence to take a photo and I quite liked the pattern they made, so I had a bit of a play on Adobe Photoshop. Nothing serious, but sometimes it’s good to relax and play around, it helps the creative process.
