About Marianne Nix

About the artwork

Our legacy and that of previous minds influence Marianne Nix’s work. In this case, plant explorers and the work of Anna Atkins, a botanist, who made cyanotype images of the flora she collected in the 19th Century, earning her place as a founding mother of photography. After taking the original photograph at Kew Gardens in the Victorian plant houses and adjusting the photograph on her computer, Marianne combines the use of modern techniques as well as old. She uses thick Saunders Waterford paper and paints the reactive chemicals onto it by hand. Transparency of a photograph (taken by Marianne) is then placed on the paper. The paper is exposed to sunlight, washed in water with added vinegar or lemon juice to deepen the blue colour and dried flat for a few days under heavyweights. Each exposure is unique, dependent on the weather, the day of the year, the duration and time of day when exposed to sunlight.
