These paintings were created as a response to the developing Eurozone crisis that began back in 2011. The four paintings of the main political leaders of Germany, Italy, France and Greece where sources from internet images and painted in various ways gradually moving from left to right from blurred, gestural/ brutal, loose and cartoonish. The concentration is of their heads playing with ideas of the 'bust' and 'off with their heads'. The painting works on many levels.
This was my response to how I thought Greece was being treated by the leaders of Germany, Italy and France - treating the Leader of Greece as a clown to be manipulated. (my view)
