My entry for the Bald Archy 2015
2015 Bald Archy
It’s taken a few years but I finally put paint to canvas and created my entry called ‘Baked Ego’.
Deciding which politician to use as my subject was proving a futile task so instead I chose Annabel Crabb. In her Kitchen Cabinet show she interviews quite a few interesting politicians in a seemingly casual forum.
However, her casual manner masks a series of penetrating questions that reveal so much. To me it appears she slowly and gently bakes their egos.
I painted Annabel in a cute 50’s style dress. Without the background it looks innocent. With the background, it looks like bloodshed.
My entry made the shortlist and is currently being exhibited around NSW. When I visited my artwork in Leichhardt recently I noticed a red dot which means it has been bought.
