For anyone who knows Steven Krahe, they will also be aware of his wonderful understanding of 'the moment', his sense of occasion. This awareness is part of the highly tuned observational skills of the artist – but it is also connected to Steven’s perceptive collecting – fragments, objects and ideas – in fact Steven houses what might be termed a collection of collections.
Is there a collective noun for that?
So, ten years ago – when the world witnessed the 100th staging of the Tour de France – Steven sat up, pens and paper at the ready, to draw Every Stage Winner of the 2013 Tour de France – and now – ten years on from the centenary event, Four Eight Four have collaborated with Simon Gardam’s Stray Pages to produce a limited edition Artists Book from Steven’s drawings.
Pertinent to the 100th staging of the Tour de France - Steven’s book is also limited to an edition of 100.
36 pages, 28 x 21 cm, softcover, Stray Pages (Melbourne).
