BREXIT with Pals

The composition is based on Caravaggio's painting, Supper at Emmaus. Seated from left to right Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative MP and BREXIT supporter, UK Prime Minister, Theresa May (sitting where Christ is placed in the original Caravaggio work) and Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party. Standing, is Nigel Farage, former UKIP Leader and a prominent BREXITEER.

On the wall, to the right of the group is another work of mine called the Empty Chair. The figure holding the X crossed paper references the UK Referendum in 2016 and harks back to a painting by Jacques-Louis David of the murdered French revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat, The Death of Marat. 

The elephant walking inside a church references BREXIT as a topic being a subject to be discussed i.e the elephant in the Room

That's the way to do it...

Maggie-May-Medusa - Gordon Coldwell


Thanks to Caravaggio for Medusa's snakes. Margaret Thatcher and Teresa May are, to date, the only 2 female Prime Ministers in UK history. Odd how they neatly combine to make a new, snarling and believable 'Maggie-May' character - looking back, Rod Stewart's classic Maggie May song of 1971 now seems strangely prophetic.

Politicians are often regarded as strange creatures that speak with 'forked tongues'... snakes have forked tongues... Medusa has a head full of snakes. So, my MMM artwork becomes the essence of a 'spitting image' politician.
