Born to Survive
‘Born to Survive’ depicts a stencil of the iconic Queen Elizabeth in camouflage print and army helmet from the iconic film ‘full metal jacket’
Finished in a vintage ornate frame sprayed with green sprays with hand embellished gold leafing. It has references to covid-19
My ‘Born to Survive’ artwork was inspired by the current pandemic situation after watching the Queen address the nation regarding coronavirus.
I consider my work to be something of a conversation with the rest of the people who see it, I’m participating in topics people are talking about. We are going through such a strange time right now and one of my coping mechanisms in difficult or bleak times has always been humour. It has the ability to comfort, entertain and unite us, and that’s something I think a lot of people need right now.
