date : 2006
size : 33” x 23¼”
medium : oil.
notes : A white union jack devoid of most colour, this work is part of a series of three paintings that look at aspects of British life, which use the flag of Great Britain as their point of departure. Another of the works which question what it is to be British in the twenty-first century, with its title deriving from the literary works of William Blake.
comment : “Stripping-away the colour from the flag interests me as it presents new opportunities to interpret such a familiar emblem.”
