One Country, Midnight Oil


international customers

I enjoyed working with Midnight Oil in their heyday.  They are a great bunch of guys who try to make a difference on a planet where people are often very self-obsessed. One night, we were sitting around a fire, talking about the need for unity in Australia.  We are one people, one country, one nation.  This home belongs to us all and we need to look after it – and each other. Eventually the band wrote a song called One Country and graciously credited me for helping with the lyrics.  Later, when I shared my idea for a film clip for the single, combining still images with moving footage of the band, they took a leap of faith and let me try.  At the time, it was ground-breaking and when Richard Wilkins launched the clip on MTV, he was gob-smacked by the concept. This artwork, produced for the single cover of One Country, was also revolutionary in its time.  We used one of my classic landscapes taken while on location with the band, plus a photo of a ripple, plus a photo of Martin Rotsey’s famous guitar.  All three images were then amalgamated using a Quantel system, one of the first photo manipulation machines in Australia – long before PhotoShop.

Your Ken Duncan Print will be created using the finest archival materials and processes to ensure the integrity of your artwork for years to come. It will be printed on Hahnemuhle 100% Cotton Rag using Epson Ultrachrome inks for maximum stability. Your print will be sprayed 3 times with Hahnemuhle UV matt varnish to maintain the surface integrity and protect against fading, then finished with lightweight, museum grade acrylic.

If your print is being delivered overseas, we will send it unframed, with detailed instructions for your framer. There is a border around the image for ease of handling, but you should handle the print with great care to avoid scuffing, kinking or other damage.
