Work commissioned for ‘Smith & Co.’ Collingwood by Banco Group

Daniel Agdag
Series of Art Screens with Heritage overlay

The screens, which resemble the dot screens that make up the graphic images on a billposter, celebrate and reflect the dynamic past of Collingwood, while employing a technique that reflects the present. The resulting imagery is comprised of two components; created from a series of cardboard sculptural cogs and pulleys that draw inspiration from knitting and weaving machinery and utilising imagery from Foy and Gibson’s famed trellised verandah and Coles’ facade, Daniel has designed an abstracted montage that pays tribute to the key areas of manufacturing; clothing, wool mills, hosiery and drapery with also a nod to the distinctive typography that adorned the buildings of the area.
