Remembrance - Giclee Print
Released September 2005
Editions: Primary, Artist Proof (A/P)
November 11th is Remembrance Day, a day in which we, as Canadians, reflect upon the sacrifices made by men and women in times of war. It is these sacrifices that have ensured that we can live our lives in comparative peace. This year, 2005, has also been named the “Year of the Veteran.” When we remember the young soldiers entering battle, we must not forget those who have fallen and those who have returned, haunted and emboldened by the depths and triumphs of war. The memories of the soldier, the pilot, the nurse and the seaman must live on beyond a single day on the calendar and be cause for reflection and remembrance throughout the year.
In “Remembrance,” I pay particular homage to the Aboriginal Veteran. While it may be known that a significant number of Aboriginal Canadians volunteered to join the military during the major wars, many do not know that they lost their Indian Status in the process. Promised pensions and housing for joining the forces, many did not receive them and, because they were no longer “Indian” under the law, they could not return to their reserves—many became poor and homeless. The tragedy lies in the fact that their battlefield comrades respected the First Nations soldiers and relied on each other in a way that only brother in arms can. When they returned home the Natives were once again relegated to their second-class status. Through four thunderbirds forged into the form of a poppy, “Remembrance” symbolizes the strength that our soldiers, our veterans and our fallen must have held for our protection. It is dedicated to all Canadian soldiers and, in particular, to my wife’s late grandfather, Thomas Clement.
“Remembrance” is a limited edition print using the giclée method of printmaking. This print was released during September of 2005 and was printed at the artist’s own studio in Comox B.C. A total of 109 prints bear the title “Remembrance” and are signed by Andy Everson: 99 in the primary edition bearing the numbers 1/99 through 99/99; 9 Artist’s Proofs; and 1 Printer’s Proof. The acid-free Moab Entrada 100% cotton rag paper measures about 13x13.75 inches. Image size measures about 12x12 inches.
