I'm Here to Rescue You! - Print
This print of the original still life oil painting by Robin Springett is inspired by the epic Space Opera, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This is the first in what I hope will become a series of paintings celebrating the iconic props of the Star Wars franchise.
For this piece I have chosen items that mark the beginning of Luke Skywalker's journey to become a Jedi Knight. On the left we have Luke's hat and goggles next to a cup of blue milk in the centre. These represent the background of Luke's story as a farm hand and his family life with his aunt and uncle.
On the left of the foreground is the restraining bolt Luke removed from R2, freeing the droid and leading to his encounter with Obi Wan. In the centre of the painting is the lightsaber that was gifted to Luke in this meeting. The Training Remote sits on the right hand side of the picture symbolising his introduction to the use of this more civilised weapon. Finally in the right hand side foreground is the medal Luke received for his role in the battle of Yavin.
All of this sits on a dejarik table, an arena for conflict between forces of light and dark.
This is a high quality Giclee print produced using archival pigments on an acid free paper. Supplied flat and ready to frame (frame not included).
Print size: 420 x 297mm (A3 landscape)
All of my paintings have been created in my Northamptonshire studio in oils on a rigid support. A grisaille underpainting was painted first in a traditional style before colour was added.
