Homage To Lindsay Anderson
I wasn't born when Lindsay Anderson's disturbing and still influential film, If..., was released in 1968 and launched a very young Malcolm McDowell to stardom. I didn't get to see it for the first time until I was 30 – which was probably a good thing because had I been any younger, its simmering rage and final, nihilistic violence might have gained an even tighter grip on my imagination. If... was the first thing that came to mind when I thought about creating a third in a series of limited edition stencils based on my earliest enamel paintings. The first two were The Yes/No Stencils, conceived at the end of September, this year.The If... Stencils (Homage To Lindsay Anderson) are three editions of just 10 signed and numbered (on front) stencils – in funerary black, bone ash grey and virginal white. Each image is 40cm x 65.5cm (or 15.7” x 25.8”), hand-stencilled in high gloss enamel on 76cm x 100cm (or 29.9" x 39.4") 100% cotton, museum-quality, white Alpharag 4ply archival board. Until 15th December, each is priced at $A750.00 – or $A2,000 for a set of the three colours – including post and packaging. After 15th December, the price will rise to $A1,000 each, with no discount for a set of three.To order or request further information, please email email@example.com. Payment can be accepted via PayPal, Western Union, and national/international bank transfer.
