This is a Miniature acrylic painting entitled 'Truth Justice in the Primary Division'. Within previous works the artist is fascinated by repeated lines, vertical with text four letter words. In this work, the artist has changed orientation in this work to create horizontal lines, and inserted text with repeated lines. The Artist has also used Primary colours, the simplest colours available, and refers to the word Primary in the title.
This artwork is a response to the current affairs news, following the following the outcome the inquest of the Hillsborough Disaster, football game FA Semi-Final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989 at the Hillsborough Sheffield Wednesday Stadium UK. (FA - Football Association- Soccer in US), in which 96 Spector's lost their lives. 'You'll never walk Alone' is the anthem of the Liverpool FC and is written above their entrance to their home ground.
In keeping with the previous versions, the Artist has kept to the same primary colours. In this version, 'Truth Justice' was a banner in Red displayed on the Town Hall, Liverpool with red candles either side. Also the red stripe refers to Liverpool's top colours of the home players. The Yellow refers to the current away team colours of Nottingham Forest (during the game they were White, but Artist changed this to todays colours of Yellow, suggesting today and referring back to past). The Blue stripe refers to the Blue fence of the barrier, also horizontal lines are lines of Fence, and also a nod to the Thin Blue Line by the Police, who created a barrier between the two teams. In previous works the Artist is interested in Walls & Fences, and Disasters, and this work is a natural continuation of that. The Artist doesn't prefer Football, as prefers other sports.
Inspired by the Pop Art Movement and the work of repeated lines of Roy Lichtenstein.
