Title

Love the stage

1970


Artist

Jan Senbergs

Australia, Latvia

29 Oct 1939 -


About

This image also reflects Senbergs' interest in surrealism and absurdist theatre:

"An ambiguous, well, an absurd image … I called it Love the stage because I didn't know what to call it, but it's a also a cliché
to say 'love the stage' – it's a kind of post-surrealist title … As far as the printing goes, it's becoming more complex."

[Hendrik Kolenberg, Jan Senbergs complete screenprints 1960-88, pg 54]
