date : 2007
size : 39” x 39”
medium : oil
notes : Classic ‘Mod’ target given the treatment by Jones, in his continuing exploration and re-interpretation of all things ‘British’.
comment : “Since I first did Airfix model plane kits in the mid-60s (a Hawker Harrier was my first), I've been very taken with the red, white and blue target. Beyond that, I remember seeing a photo of Keith Moon wearing a white t-shirt with a huge target on the front; my first exposure to Pop Art as such. I also like taking known iconic imagery and re-presenting it in different contexts.”
