Eching, Aquatint and chine-collé using Japanese Chiyogami paper, created and hand-printed by Anne Gournay on Fabriano paper. The shape of each butterfly is carefully cut-out by hand before making the chine-collé. This combination is unique, because another Chiyogami paper in the shape of the butterfly has been used as an additional chine-collé on the first butterfly in the third row. This series of work reminds of Victorian curiosity cases, and is part of Anne Gournay's ephemeral series, celebrating the beauty and fragility of life.
