Artwork Description

Acrylic on paper

Signed on the back.

The idea behind The Black Queen III is a simple one:

Put black on red on black on red on . . .
I have a red king and a red jack, I now need a black queen. So, a spade or a club.

But I kept thinking about that phrase "Black queen." What if . . .

The mental picture that very quickly emerged was of a beautiful negro lady on the card. This time she's the Queen of Hearts, but they're black hearts, not red.

The third iteration of this concept, this is a mirror image created by hand, nominally identical but with tiny variations owing to the manual realisation of the work. You can play 'spot the differences.'

The figure is drawn as closely as possible in style to traditional court card standards, but as an African queen. Larger than life, brightly coloured and 'outside the box,' this beautiful poster will be quite a talking point as it lights up your living area. Sure to catch the eye of all who see it.
