Cyanotype hand created and developed by Inga Lisa Middleton on archival paper, signed and numbered at the front. This work is part of the "Thoughts of Home" series inspired by Inga Lisa Middleton's Icelandic homeland, which has been exhibited internationally. The cyanotype technique was developed in the mid 19th century for reproducing text and drawings as blueprints. The term cyanotype derives from cyan, the blue color that characterizes the pictures. The technique is based on a chemical reaction between two substances, whereby water fixes the image to the paper. The resultant vivid blue may be said to evoke the limpid blue light of the Arctic. Dryas Octopetala exists as a large print (50cm x 50cm) or as a smaller print (20cm x 20cm).
