Rebecca Bruyn from Cape Cod in USA works with cyanotypes as an expression of a love of light and a passion of history.
From: Truro, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA.
In 1999, she found herself torn between two very different approaches, the simple cyanotype process and the more technologically complex digital imaging.
In 2000 she took a cyanotype workshop and since then Rebecca has dedicated her time to this alternative process. Using a paint brush to apply the solution, she strives to make each piece unique capturing a visual sense of the past. It may be a moment that reflects a feeling of simplicity and beauty of the outer cape or a classic view of a known landmark. Her work is an expression of a love of light and a passion of history.
In 2010 she won a competition for the 100th anniversary of the building of the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This image was then used as a wine label on a special edition of Truro Vineyards wine called Century.
Her work can be seen at The Cortile Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts or www.cortilegallery.com.
“In a world filled with the complexity of today’s technology, I find the simplicity of the cyanotype process to be very rewarding. It provides a creative outlet and inspires me to continue to experiment with my love of light.”
