I have been thrown a bit by the new layout but I shall do my best. The work is a diptych inspired by the need for change. I have used a decontructed Union Jack for the background, reflecting the chaotic state of the nation. The figures were made in fabric from my own sketches & then scanned onto the background.
The captions on the placards refers to the so-called 'pasty tax' & arose from an article in the paper when a lady from Helston stated that she was thinking of putting these words in her pasty shop window. (For non-UK members the 'pasty tax' was the name given to our government's decision to put VAT on hot pasties which had been exempt previously. This appears to have hit the renowned Cornish pasty particularly hard).
