While we value some flowers above others, even weeds feed the butterflies. Weeds are just as important as any fancier flower in the life cycle of the natural world. They prevent topsoil from washing away, and feed insects and animals. The paper is first painted with a photosensitive solution and left to dry in darkness. Once dried, the image is exposed in the sun. I love to watch what develops when I lay objects out on the sensitized photo paper in the sun. As I wash the image in water, a magical ghostly print of the object emerges. With its deep prussian blue and white highlights, the cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photography. I love the way the photogram is both a photograph and also reminiscent of a painting.

about the artist

byraven erebus

Sunnyvale, CA

I like to find the magical in ordinary everyday things. Much of my work is inspired by things no further than then end of the driveway, because I suffer from a chronic disability. It's my art that saves me. I have been making art of one form or another my whole life. I have worked in many mediums: photography, collage, bookarts, printmaking, painting, and fabric design.
