Peace is in Your Hands – Limited Edition Print

Screen Shot 2013-09-03 at 3.57.11 PMArtist Jill Carter-Hansen designed the image PEACE IS IN YOUR HANDS in New Zealand in a small version in 1983 to assist fundraising in New Zealand at the time of the Cold War.

Jill Carter-Hansen has been involved with both environmental and peace organisations for many years, and has been able to continue to assist these organisations for a number of years through sales of work. She hopes to use this image to help spread a message of peace and raise money for peace initiatives such as the Sydney Peace Foundation.

In 2003, following the increase in tensions in the world after September 11, the artist digitally reworked the image to an A1 size from a former remaining printed card produced in 1983 – a similar image created at that time. The original artwork had been lost.

This later version – from this limited edition – is currently held in the collections of the New South Wales State Library (Sydney, Australia) and the Australian War Museum (Canberra, Australia) and more recently at the War Memorial Museum (Auckland.)

In a moment of conflict, anger or upset a glance at this artwork may very well assist a person to realise they can choose to bring peace into their own life and to those around them, therefore contributing to inner peace. Potentially, this could have far-reaching effects in today’s interconnected world.

The limited edition print is composed from collaged photogram images and resembles a very large single photograph. The print is A1 size (592 x 865mm or 23 1/2 x 34 inches including the border of approximately 60 mm or 2 3/8 inches) printed as a duotone on high quality 300 gram paper with a satin matt finish.

The unframed limited edition print , (including national postage.) is $75 with $30 to the Sydney Peace Foundation.
