Sign of the Times : is a truly Kiwiana collage this version is a square cropped version of the larger vertical Sign of the Times.
Inspiration: Milkshakes, fish & chips, TipTop icecreams, takeaways, 4 Square... back in the day when 99c used to go a long way! This artwork is a layered photographic based snapshot of the many urban and local superette /dairy signs that we identify as our Kiwi heritage and so commonly relate to through our childhood memories and experiences growing up in New Zealand.
Process : This series of works originate from hand painted signs which I have then re-composed to produce my own layered sign boards, picking out bits & pieces from each sign. When the unique, imperfect and quickly hand-painted words are bought together in a structured & layered composition, it is only then that we see the beauty in the inadvertent drybrushing', layering, rubbing back, painting over, and completely free & practical expression of these sign boards - ironically, these are many of the techniques that artists use today !
Printing & framing options : With canvas orders this artwork is printed so that the image is printed around the edges of the stretched canvas. View the image included in this listing for details relating to all printing & mounting options or click here.
