Big Blue #5

Helen Dixon has long been fascinated by the continuous movement of energy in nature, unending and in constant flux. Source material for her Cyanotype work came initially from her own photography, drawings and notes made on walks along various parts of the south coast of England. Her aim is to capture the sense of movement and energy. Each print from the Big Blue series shows a wave in isolation, one momentary formation in an ongoing process of continual transformation. ...more

Helen Dixon was born in London in 1986, where she is now based. She received her BA (Hons) from Chelsea College of Arts, London following a Foundation from Camberwell College of Arts, London. She works by the principles, ‘energy is neither created, nor is it destroyed’, and, ‘the elements suffer continual rearrangement.’ Her focus is the cyanotype photographic process, which produces an exquisite Prussian blue image. She has been exhibited at Tate Modern and The Royal Academy of Arts amongst others. Recognition include the Aesthetics Art Prize (2019). Follow her on Instagram @hahahelen.

    • Title: Big Blue #5 , 2018

    • Paper: Heritage Rag - an unbuffered 300gsm/medium weight printmaking paper

    • Print Size: 56 x 76cm

    • Full bleed, no border. Deckled (torn) paper edge.

    • Edition of 6 + 1 Artist Proof

These works are made using the cyanotype photographic process, which uses simple chemistry, light and water to produce a Prussian blue image. Autographic line drawings take the place of a photographic negative to create the final image. Each cyanotype is created by hand individually and as a result there may be a slight difference between the screen version and the final print. Please note that the cyanotype is full bleed, there is no border on the paper and the edge of the paper is deckled, i.e. it will have a rough edge.


    • External Dimensions: 71 x 91 cm

The cyanotype will be floated within the frame on a white background (mount board). The print will be hinge mounted, a process which will allow the print to be safely removed from the frame should there ever be a need to do so. Please note that as this is hand framed, there may be a slight wave in the print within the frame which is a common occurrence when framing original prints.
