Jeff Canham Flags and Pennants for The Standard
Jeff's paintings and design work explore the various ways language – particularly phrases and idioms – can be conveyed and interpreted. His work often combines text with graphic elements, and in some cases the text itself becomes the graphic element, as in the series for The Standard.
Each of the 26 hand-painted pieces in Canham’s edition represents a different letter of the alphabet, referencing traditional nautical flags in the artist’s distinctive graphic style. They're available in various shapes of painted canvas with prominent grommets for hanging. Flags are 27" x 14".
Note that the first 2 photos show accurate color representation.
