Cyanotype is a process that creates a cyan blue print through exposure to UV light. It is a classic exposure process that has been around since the 1800s, however, Terri Dilling’s unique painterly approach transforms a traditional method into a contemporary expression. Dilling paints the cyanotype fluid onto high quality archival papers, similar to painting with ink. The work is exposed outside in the sun and then rinsed in water. After that, she uses a variety of toning methods and multiple exposure layers to achieve visual depth and variation within the medium.
