This image was a collaboration between myself and Nik Dimopoulos. It was created as part of Nik’s imagery for his legendary Trough parties which occur regularly in both Melbourne and Sydney.
This image represents my interpretation of fear, ignorance and misunderstanding. It is a portrait of my inability to understand and my visceral response to the direction of some recent political changes and movements, both here and abroad.
If you think this image is bizarre, how bizarre is voting Pauline Hanson back to Parliament! I am concerned for the current political zeitgeist.
