59th Painting

I used the blissful human situation of a loving father and new baby (the original models were David Cameron and his new baby daughter) and contrasted this with an American female soldier, heavily equipped and ready to fight. Traditional gender roles are questioned in the painting. The release of Wikileakes information regarding politician’s knowledge of torture in Iraq scarily highlights man’s inability to genuinely respect the human situation.
