Cyanotype is a type of printing where UV rays are used to imprint the color onto a surface. A negative of an image or an object is placed onto the coated surface and left in sunlight or under a UV lamp. The solution will begin to change color during exposure. The exposed part of the paper will fade in the UV exposure. Once fully processed, the paper is rinsed with water and an image of the negative or object develops is left behind with a blue (or other colored) background.
FULL TILT BOOGIE WOOGIE: meaning life lived to its fullest, full speed ahead, bringing our memories with us while opening to the newly possible. The twenty-four works in this online exhibition by twelve members of the New York Artists Circle express our collective desire to escape the isolation imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and live once again at full tilt.
