Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is a piece of Conceptual & Minimalist Art

This is an unofficial Party Political Broadcast by the Conservative Party.

The ready-made stainless steel “Can” has the initials “MT = TM”, which is initials of the past and present Party Political Leaders of the Conservative Party. The Artist is suggesting that the there is an Equal but Opposite link between the former Female Prime Minister of the Conservative Party, Margaret Thatcher (indicated by initials "MT", known as the "Iron Lady") and the current Female Prime Minster, Theresa May (indicated by initials "TM", known for quote, "Brexit means Brexit", in which she indicated that UK will Leave the European Union). The Mathematical Equal sign is suggesting that they are linked & connected. They both have the same initials, Equal, but Inverted, suggesting, there May-be, an Equal but inverted repeat of Political History, in the future, only time will tell.

Conservative Party colours of Blue have been used as the background, and the text.

The Artist would take a ready-made “Can” remove it’s Label, to reveal the Stainless Steel Can underneath, and re-label with a Satirical character words, to highlight an issue of the day, inspired by satirical & comedy puppet TV series, Newzoids (2015-present) and previously Spitting Image (1984-1996) on UK Television.

This artwork has been inspired by the previous works in the “Back to Basics: Cans” series of works, and the previous work “Back to Basic: Anti Consumerism Cans (2009)” (see last image and link below)
