A selection of my final, and some extra prints, that I made for the Cut for Evans competition. Our brief was to design six “hero” pieces so, using the word hero as my starting point, I looked at women who had all achieved something remarkable and important. This formed the inspiration behind my print, and although it may not be obvious, there’s elements of these six women (Queen Victoria, Boudica, Empress Wu Zeitan, Joan of Arc, Eleanor of Acquitane and Hatsheput) in there. I wanted it to be a conceptual representation of these women rather than an obvious one.
All of the prints were digitally made on Photoshop, and I built up layers and different images from images and paintings of these six women to fully embody the story behind my collection.
