This is my entry for the weekly #BarryM #workofart competition with #JamieMusical #JamieLondon
Drag has been a big part of my life for the past couple years and I absolutely love the acceptance and the self expression within the culture, it’s amazing to see so much diversity all in one place ~

Your life is your most true form of art. Your art isn’t about how many people like your work, your art is about if your heart likes your work, your soul likes you work, it’s about how how honest you are with yourself, and you must never trade honesty for relatability 🥊 🎨 #workofart

One should either be a work of art or wear a work of art.

‘Trumtin Portrait’ (2018)
Reimagined “Arnolfini Portrait” by fabulous artist Jan van Eyck
(1434)
In my piece, Putin and Trump are forging their special ‘relationship’ whilst the sheep, represensting the media, watches but seemingly powerless. •
The handcuffs that replace P’s right hand symbolises his authoritarian edge.
T is Pregnant with skulls which could be interpreted as the potential harm that may result from such a union. •
Hannity in the background proclaiming “emojis making your kids gay’ articulates the level of disinformation abundant in the fake news generation. •
Melania is present yet mute. •
Paulmeddler23 is in the mirror, watching over the ‘special relationship’, and the artists signature on the wall confirms that the watching will be lasting, however, the cracks in the wall suggests this disruptive era is taking its toll on the artist and perhaps the world. •
P’s two faces is self-explanatory, as is the duplicity present throughout this piece.

‘Facing Alternatives Keeps Everyone Nervous Even When Suspect’ —— F. A. K. E. N. E. W. S. (2018) •

The plate of ham represents apparent abundance although the mouse, embodying all that is digital, is threatening to consume it. •
The skeleton rolls the dice, the three sixes, impossible results, implying that we have already gambled with our future the win appears too good to be true. •
Plughead is feeling negative about where things are going. •
Pirated favourite entertainment on VHS

‘Eating Chips By A ReConstructed Memory Of The River Thames’ (2018) •
It’s funny how we think we remember a place. •

The river Thames is black and brown but as kids we would swim in it...
• ...Battersea Power Station glows with energy...the figure, non gender specific but has been seen as feminine has a head full of subjective memories.
The TARDIS in the distance represents childhood fantasy. •
When I was a child, I thought people knew all the world, it’s places, animals, fauna, how many there were, their habits and lifespans. As I grew older I recognised that most of it was a mystery to us with pockets of the unknown.


6

It’s Up To You’ (2018) •
This piece speaks of issues of sexuality. The two seemingly female figures have broke through societies barriers to live as they choose.
The skull lamps signify the centuries of persecution under the spotlight of religious dictates and the law, resulting in incarceration, sterilisation, reversion therapy and ultimately death.
The bong represents another group who have been criminalised for doing something harmless in the pursuit of happiness.
The bling items indicate the potential riches for society to be gained by for granting these figures peace.
The Paulmeddler soda proclaims fears the artists of being consumed, by art, and by the possibilities it may produce.
