Maggie Robertson is an artist living and working in St. Louis. After completing her degree in Fine Art from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA '97) with an emphasis in photography, her latest work continues to explore this genre through her work with the cyanotype technique. Discovered in 1842, cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

“I hope to conjure ideas of a hidden animal world, full of ceremony, celebration, prophecy and providence. I like to imagine there is a story unfolding here, a fable, that I do not know, but have caught a glimpse of.”
