Dangerous Liaisons

BBut Donald said God DNA doesn't lie -  Gordon Coldwell
Beyond Reasonable Doubt - Gordon Coldwell
Here's How We Close the Deal -  Gordon Coldwell

"But Donald", said God, "DNA Doesn't Lie."

'DNA Doesn't Lie' is Part 1 of a triptych of images that together form an artwork called 'Dangerous Liaisons - The Trump Trials'. All 3 works take their compositional lead from works by the Flemish painter Jan van Eyck - 'Beyond Reasonable Doubt' is Part 2 and 'Here's How We Close the Deal' Part 3.

The religious iconography and semiotics employed in van Eyck's works still play a significant role in my remade works, albeit the narratives evident in each of the 3 Parts are seriously skewed since the characters pictured are no longer those relating to Christianity but are those caught up in contemporary US politics and scandal. 

Pictured in 'DNA Doesn't Lie' are, from left to right: US President Donald Trump; Nicolas Poussin's Adoration of the Golden Calf; Trump's right hand and circle making fingers; a golden-headed child with 'mop hair'; porn star Stormy Daniels; Pope Francis.

Beyond Reasonable Doubt

'Beyond Reasonable Doubt' is the Part 2 centrepiece of a triptych of images that together form an artwork called 'Dangerous Liaisons - The Trump Trials'. All 3 works take their compositional lead from works by the Flemish painter Jan van Eyck - "...but Donald", said God, "DNA doesn't lie!" is Part 1 and 'Here's How We Close the Deal' Part 3.

Pictured in 'Beyond Reasonable Doubt' are, from left to right: James Comey, former Head of the FBI; the shadow of Hillary Clinton in the background; porn star, Stormy Daniels; the baby, Vladimir Putin, Russian President; US President Donald Trump; US Vice President, Mike Pence.

"Here's How We Close the Deal"

"Here's How We Close the Deal" is Part 3 of a triptych of images that together form an artwork called 'Dangerous Liaisons - The Trump Trials'. All 3 works take their compositional lead from works by the Flemish painter Jan van Eyck - "...but Donald", said God, "DNA doesn't lie" is Part 1 and 'Beyond Reasonable Doubt' is Part 2.

Pictured in "Here's How We Close the Deal" are: from left to right, Hillary Clinton holding a very big key; a white Dove of peace; porn star Stormy Daniels.
