Art Description

Painting: Household, Oil on Canvas.

"Queen" imagines a forlorn portrait of Freddie Mercury in performance, as if lost and overtaken by mildew, leaving visible only the rock star's phantom silhouette. The primitive hearts in the lower right corner recall personalised tributes to fallen celebrities, while evoking cave drawings whose significance can never fully be excavated but remains forever cryptic. "Queen" is also a depiction of constitutional monarchy in the present era, exploring the fine line between tourist traps and sacred repositories of history, both of which England's matriarch has come to personify.
