For the background I have used a page from a Gothic German to English dictionary and printed the queens image that I have then overwork to make her black and to relate to colonialism. When I first began printing images of the queen onto the dictionary pages I wasn't aware that the book was a German dictionary. Synchronicity playfully draws attention to the irony and part German heritage of the queen.
Please note that the painting is beautifully framed in a white wooden frame. Total measurements, inc frame are 33cm x 41cm's inc frame
