Description

"Her Majes-Tea." 2017 Oil on Canvas
'Her Majes-Tea' is a continuation of my ongoing tea cup theme, and in this painting I wanted to allude to the "English High Tea" tradition and all of its connotations. However I incorporated a juxtaposition of unrefinement and Australian classlessness by leaving the teabag in the cup and using a souvenir teaspoon. The predominant colours of pink and blue refer to those often favoured by the Queen and the pattern of the cup has been deliberately repeated on the tablecloth as a unifying motif.
