These cyanotypes are like a time capsule of summer. Flowers and ferns are gathered and pressed. The summer sun prints their shapes and details onto linen, where they are captured in blue to enjoy all year. The final results feel more dreamlike than a photograph. The process goes beyond capturing a specific moment, and instead infuses the linen with a special alchemy between plants and the sun.
The linen that Parker has chosen for these wall hangings is the perfect host for their untamed organicism. Irregular itself, it reveals its contours and pretty imperfections as it’s draped, stretched, or handled. Carefully stitched and finished off with a brass dowel hanger, each Cyanotype Wall Hanging is one-of-a-kind and ready to hang.
These Cyanotype Wall Hangings are our sixth(!) project with the ever-impressive Parker, who has perfected her practice of botanical artmaking across many mediums. Her debut 20x200 print editions, Catskill Prairie and Bi-coastal, showcase her penchant for plantlife and skillful mastery of cyanotype printing. From printing to painting, Parker dazzled collectors with her Flower Stamped Linen Panels and wistful watercolor work of Salton Sea. And let us not forget that time she took us to the moon!
