Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by Greek mythological winged creatures, Sirens and Harpies. These bird- human hybrids are found in The Odyssey and The Seventh Circle in Dante's Inferno.

Technique
Siren Songs XL was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture combined with illustrations of birds. After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.
