"This was almost the last one I made. I'd left Canberra and so it was printed at my Port Melbourne studio. By that time I thought I'd leave it alone because I was starting with the Port Melbourne paintings and everything was changing … There is a platform, a slight suggestion of perspective and I was using the remaining bits of stencil that I had around the place at the time.
This screenprint was commissioned by the Print Council of Australia as its Patron print for 1977."
