marine macroalgae paper on stretched bleached canvas

Description

This artwork is made from marine macroalgae, ie seaweeds, which have been processed to form paper pulp. The pulp has then been used to form individual shaped paper pieces, which have been attached to bleached canvas. Pulp has also been applied directly to the canvas to build the image.
The artwork is inspired by the Icelandic folktale of the Seal Woman and is from my 'Seal Woman' series.
The work has been sealed and coated with UV protective varnish, and the canvas is stretched and ready to hang.
