Cyanotype, handmade paper, 24-carat gold leaf (Framed)

31 cm diameter x 1 cm frame depth x 1.8 cm frame face


This artwork was inspired by Philomela, a Greek mythological figure known as the princess of Athens


This empowering fable of Philomela’s metamorphosis into a nightingale conveys a message of perseverance, self-determination and shows resilience in the face of adversity. By breaking enforced silence to reclaim her voice, she is a forerunner for the mute protagonists of folk and fairy tales, embodying the archetype of the female storyteller, actively rebelling against oppression and exploring silence as a feminst issue
