Oil & Acrylic on canvasThe Teabreak is Over, 202070cmx 50cm

The work is concerned with accumulation, materialism and repetition. It cites routine and systematic behaviour induced by work, leisure and environment. The work submitted evolved from an interest in flags. Arrangements of colours that can denote power unity and dissent. This led to the fake heraldry. Heraldry is the reserve of aristocracy and government,it is often declamatory and pretentious. The work submitted is an inversion. It is a comment on hard physical labour. It is deliberately declamatory pretentious and vulgar. The work was completed before lockdown and is not an exhortation to get back to work.
