The Artwork:

On the 23rd of February Pejac released his latest print: So Far, So Close, dealing with the indiscriminate and senseless loss that comes with war, not knowing that the very next day Russian forces would invade Ukraine. It is a striking image that depicts an infinite circular trench embedded in a desolate landscape, as soldiers burst over the top into battle. This artwork challenges the simplistic duality with which the war is too often described, as the artist himself puts it “sometimes perceiving someone as a friend or a foe is just a matter of perspective”.

Trying to offer some help in this painful situation, the artist is offering a totally unique print proof of So Far, So Close at a charity auction. All 100% of the proceeds will be given to the NGOs Voices of Children, focused on helping children who have suffered as a result of military operations to recover psychologically and psychosocially, and Acted, a French NGO that works to provide basic necessities to the population as well as helping in evacuation and crisis management training.

The print itself measures 110 x 80 cm, and is the result of a painstaking multiphase production process that adds a novel feature to Pejac’s print-making practice: the use of the monotype technique. To this one of one print proof, with the edition number #10/15, the artist has also hand-drawn in the finishing details of two plumes of blue and yellow coloured smoke, aswell as different shades of acrylic and coloured pencils to different areas of the print.
