The Edge Screen Studio worked on several projects with Ken Danby. The first of which was to reproduce, on a T-shirt, Ken’s 30-colour serigraph called “True North” which was commissioned by Ontario Parks. This painting depicts a cedar canoe, resting on a rocky mound in a tree-lined lake and captures every remarkable detail. The painting also creates an intense feeling of peace and tranquility. Achieving Ken’s masterful photographic style required perfectly separating the image into 10 colours and painstaking fine-tuning on the press.
Our most memorable collaboration was to produce the 11-colour T-shirt reproduction of Ken’s famous egg tempura painting called “At the Crease.” The painting and the T-shirts were exhibited at the “Land, Water & Light: Ken Danby Landscapes” at the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery in Toronto in 2004.
