This artwork is from an edition of 20.

Glimpses of sunlight shining through a canopy of tropical leaves are captured by Craig Keenan using the rich quality of the cyanotype process. 

Multi-media artist Craig Keenan paints, screen prints, illustrates and creates typographical work, but it is cyanotypes that he returns to most frequently and finds most rewarding:

"Cyanotyping hits all the right notes for me creatively – it’s digital and analogue, painterly and expressive. It’s also slightly unpredictable."

Cyanotype printmaking is a 19th-century printing process originally used to create 'blue prints' for engineers and scientists.

Craig Keenan is also including Clouds in The Spring Auction.
