23.12.2011 – Third New Year card designed by Gary Stern

 
In this 3rd and last series the artist completes his work and closes the circle. The unfinished pipe is given its tone on site, becomes a part of the whole, of the organ. The print of the third tin sheet, now completely worked, is shown in a rich, deep black and is a symbolic representation of the whole instrument, the secret of which is manifested not visually but in its tone.

The basis and the workpiece for Gary Stern’s endeavour are the crude tin plates cut to a size of 16.6 x 18.6 cm. Their woven texture, which is created by casting on cloth, forms the matrix for Gary Stern’s work.
