On my wall – The Art of Remembrance

Remember Them remembers all who served in WWI. Almost 100,000 New Zealanders (10% of all Kiwis at that time) served overseas in WWI, with over 18,000 dying and 40,000 injured. The total number of casualties for all countries in WWI was 37 million. The Art of Remembrance provides two unique and permanent ways for us to Remember Them.

On 24 March 2015, Max Gimblett created multiple handpainted ink works rendered with Japanese Sumi ink on Arches cold press watercolour paper. The artist then selected seven designs from these works to be hand-printed as multiples. Solid brass quatrefoils were then laser cut and primed to ensure that the artworks do not need to be brass cleaned. They were then individually hand screen printed.

I purchased my three pieces from Workshop, where you view all of the seven designs.
