Some of the theme in this painting now seem somewhat cliche. However, it was made as the Domonic Cummings story broke. As I listened to the radio and looked at Twitter, a jumble of images came to mind. I tend to note ideas down as picture notes, looking at the notes I made about the story, I wanted to combine them into a story picture. There are many references in the painting. References include playing games, falling like dominos, Domonic being a similar word to domino, Cummings being a similar word to coming, flowers, Lillies symbolising lily-white innocence, the ‘R’ rate combined with road signage, government slogans like ‘Stay at Home’ being corrupted to ‘Stay Elite’ and more!
This sort of painting helps me to organise my thoughts and I hope also communicates to others.
