‘(Dis) UK’

date : 2007

size : 33½” x 23¼”

medium : oil

notes : In this work, Jones has separated the four home countries of the United Kingdom, representing each nation within the quadrants. Painted on four separate canvases, this piece is only signed once in the lower right canton.

comment : “The title ‘(Dis)UK’ was a song released by Hen Wlad Fy Mamau / Land Of My Mothers; a comment on the state of the union in the first decade of the new century. I'm not a nationalist in any way, nor do I have a flag. Perhaps one day, I will paint my own.”
