‘Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?’

date : 2003

size : 16¾” x 17¼”

medium : collage.

notes : An homage to Richard Hamilton’s seminal Pop Art piece from 1956. This piece keeps the same proportions as the Hamilton work, replacing the ‘muscle man’ (50’s ‘ideal’) carrying the lolliPop, with David Beckham (00’s ‘ideal’) singing karaoke.

comment : “I love the Hamilton original. I wanted to apply my New Pop aesthetic to a re-interpretation of the piece. Quite prophetic having a bird on the sunbed who ain’t Posh. David Beckham singing karaoke in the parlour? If that isn’t ‘Pop’, what is?”
