Artist's Description

Cointreau (Still-Life) ~ screen printed (photographic stencil) image using black ink on light brown textured paper.

Once upon a time …


  • An earlier artwork went through several metamorphic art technique processes in order to be transformed to what is seen here.
  • The original inspired cubist-influence image was reproduced onto a black tonal copier film transparency. This was then used to create a photographic screen-print stencil form via a light exposure technique.
  • Once happy with a satisfactory screen image result, i.e. not too thick, not too thin ~ so the fine newsprint text would print OK. This took a couple of time consuming and costly efforts BTW, then I began to experiment with direct hands-on screen-printing the photographic stencil image, onto various selected paper and fabric surfaces.

    Cointreau (Still-Life) is a ‘unique state’ image, screen-printed with black water-based screen-printing ink onto a irregular light textural sheet of paper.
    The paper’s former state was scrunched up, but then I flattened it out with all wrinkles and irregularities. A natural light organic brown fibre paper it came in owner’s acquired shoe boxes at the time and lovingly saved for special future use.

    This newly transformed composition pulls the work even further toward it’s Cubist intent.
  • “The Cubist painters rejected the inherited concept that art should copy nature, or that they should adopt the traditional techniques of perspective, modeling, and foreshortening. They wanted instead to emphasize the two-dimensionality of the canvas. So they reduced and fractured objects into geometric forms, and then realigned these within a shallow, relief-like space. They also used multiple or contrasting vantage points.” ~ Cubism
  • “In Cubist artwork, objects are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.3” ~ Cubism, From Wikipedia

    There is ‘a time for everything …’
  • This work has never appeared before in the public arena until the month of October, 2013.
  • After another minor transformation for it’s presentation, i.e. mounted onto a 16″ × 12″ canvas for hanging, the work has made it’s debut at the Cairns Regional Gallery for exhibiting and made available for sale (via the silent bidding process), as part of their Annual Fundraising event ~ ‘The Affordable Art Auction’ 4 – 18 October, 2013.
  • Post note – Original work has now SOLD.
