Five large pochoirs, derived from Bachinski's paintings, reflect various approaches to still life and are the most complex he has done to date. Five color reduction lino cuts are paired with quotations about, or statements by, the artists who inspired Bachinshi. The title page and colophon also have linocut images. In contrast to all the vibrant color, the text is interspersed with 5 b&w woodcuts. Bachinski has explored the genre of still lifes for decades. In this book he explains his debt to some of the great still life artists such as Chardin, Cezanne, Redon, Braque, & Matisse. Bachinski discusses his own studio practice and how he approaches the development of a still life composition. Printed in Deepdene type on 200 gsm Arches Cover by Janis Butler. Bachinski printed the woodcuts on Oguni Fuddagami, using a Washington iron handpress. One of 30 copies.
