About This Piece:

I created this highly textural photo transfer collage due to an inspiration by calligraphy. Many layers of imported, hand made papers, paint and other empemera give an ancient appearance to the bit of text that peeks out from the backbround. This particular example of calligraphy is written in the French style of the 1470’s and is based largely on the Grandes Heures of Anne of Brittany and Hours of the Mary of Burgandy. This particular page shows the beginning of the Canonical Hours of Sext (midday office). The text was originally written in Latin, scribed with a quill using Chinese ink, gouache and gold leaf on parchmentine.
