By Third Drawer Down
$38.00 Sold Out
Third Drawer Down continues its tradition of producing covetable artist tea towels with this stunning work by Tony Albert. Created to be used functionally in your kitchen or framed and hung to adorn any wall.

Renowned for his distinctly contemporary imagery, engaging with political, historical and cultural Aboriginal and Australian History, Tony Albert has long been fascinated by the tension between the visibility and invisibility of Aboriginal people in media, literature and the visual world. Put simply by Albert, "what is Seen and Unseen."

A gift packaged set of four corkboard coasters, featuring works from Tony Albert’s Mid-Century Modern series.

"There was something quite metaphoric about the ashtray and the Australian condition attached to Aboriginal people. What does it actually mean to butt out a cigarette on someone's face and someone's culture?"  Tony Albert

Albert turns the tables on history, cheekily yet assertively reclaiming designs and motifs from Preston's Aboriginal woodblock prints to honour the subjects and voices of the work's original creators.
