16 (Figures on Manly Beach) After Mancy Kilgour
Untitled (Figures on Manly Beach after Nancy Kilgour), 2015, archi val pigment ink print, signed, titled, dated and editioned in ink verso, 76 x 115cm. Edition of 5 plus 2 A/P's.
The background of this work was taken (literally) from the painting by Nancy Kilgour (circa 1930) which depicts the south end of Manly Beach. Kilgour's painting was in itself based on the Impressionist painting Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte by Georges Seurat in 1884. The artist, Anne Zahalka has said of this "I'm intrigued that Nancy Kilgour has reflected on Seurat's early painting almost as an early post modern gesture…. I enjoyed thinking about the fact that Nancy had chosen this relatively modern painting to draw inspiration from…. it was a wonderful new stimulus for me." *
The background image in the series of portraits in Manly: Playground of the Pacific, 2015 was created digitally by removing the figures from Kilgour's painting and reproducing it as a large vinyl backdrop including the recognisable apartment blocks at Manly's south end.
