‘Union Jackboot (What If?)’

date : 2007

size : 33½” x 23¼”

medium : oil

notes : This painting takes the union flag into hypothetical territory, employing the colours of the despised Nazi party (as opposed to the colours of the Deutsch flag) to pose this question : “Who put the boot in jack?”. 'What If?' indeed.

comment : “When looking into the history of the union jack (and that of flags in general), it is often key points in the history of nations which determine their respective national flags.”
