‘Norma Queen’

date : 2002

size : 35” x 16½”

medium : giclée.

notes : This gicléed multiple, from the original single collage, was produced for the ‘Vive La Republique’ anti-golden jubilee show at the Centre of Attention, London. The image was selected by the London Evening Standard ‘Hot Tickets’ to promote the exhibition.

comment : “I was working with Jamie Reid at this point; I wanted to do a piece for this show, but what could I do to the queen that Jamie hadn’t already done? I steered away totally from his work, planted my tongue firmly in my cheek; I found a picture of QE2 without a crown or headscarf (not as easy as it may sound). She had that kind of 50’s semi-Marilyn suburban housewife hairdo, so I produced ‘Norma Queen’”.
