Lesley Nakonechny is a graphic designer, artist and photo-enthusiast based out of Winnipeg. She fell in love with cyanotype a few years ago and never looked back. The process dates back to 1842 which uses sunlight to expose a negative to create a positive print. On occasion, Lesley ‘tones’ her cyanotypes with tea to create beautiful sepia effects.
‘The Creature that Escaped the Nursing Home’ are a series of new prints that present a whimsical character staged in various situations. Though the creature is only made of everyday objects, the work aims to have us reflect on our own identities and the stories we leave on others.
