Print Method: Giclée
Released: November 2005
Winter on the west coast can be quite dreary. Day after day of rain, combined with winds that often reach gale-force will leave you couped up in your house, itching to get out. The first snowfall of the year is a memorable occasion. Kids grab their snowgear and head for the nearest hill, knowing full well that their white carpet of snow will probably not last the night.
“Snowflake” was created to portray the temporality of the snowfall and of life. Each flake is different and unique. Each flake contains a vital force that shapes the world around it. Each flake will eventually disappear to appear again in another form.
“Snowflake” is a limited edition print using the giclée method of printmaking. Print production took place during November of 2005 at the artist’s own studio in Comox B.C. A total of 109 prints bear the title “Snowflake” 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 100% cotton Royal Riviera Rag paper 9.5x13 inches. Image size measures about 8.5x8.5 inches.
