A SING SONG OF NEVER SEVEN EVER/EVER is a series of prints Aleks Danko produced at the Australian Print Workshop as a Collie Print Trust Fellow in 2004.
Our home, our nation and our world are all made from coarse necessities and fine dreams; imagination becomes the bulwark of pragmatism. The concern Danko has for the wilful illusions essential to maintain house and home exist in his works sympathy toward fragile belief systems and in warning against becoming complacent in them.
In this new work, Danko’s ‘home’ of repeated pragmatism is put to score. He makes multi-part harmonies by merging the history and ethics of his own practice with the possibilities engendered by multiple, overlapping, print techniques. Print and song, litany and longing, these prints correlate to the repetition and cycle with which we inhabit our world.
