Work No. 611; Boat Race Man; remembering Trenton Oldfield

Boat race Man

Boat race Man

Michael St.Mark 2012

 

A one-man Easter crusade against the tide of Tory blue nastiness wrecking the nation.

( Multi-phase photo manipulation artist-retouched signed edition Lightjet prints )

Remembering the admirably- principled activist from down under, who literally risked his neck  earlier this year to remind 30 million viewers worldwide of the nasty,  pernicious Oxbridge-run class system still thriving ( running the government,the banks, the media and arts; extorting via unelected privilege and exerting gross inequality across the jobs and opportunities market )  in the “home of Democracy”.
Just a few days ago learning from some crusty old beak that a custodial sentence is on the cards for creating a “public nuisance”.

“Trenton did a good deed, to be considered performance art in line with the moral protest spirit of Dada” – Michael St.Mark

Trenton-Oldfield--010
The price of peaceful direct action protest against obscene inequalty
and inhumane policy in a de facto fascist-capitalist state.

CONTEXT
_______________________________________________
Chance picture in low light conditions of a morose girl dressed in black, walking slowly around an old dock basin in Annan, SW Scotland as if absorbed in memory.
Title relates to the terrible whirlwind of chaos, grief and overpowering sense of loss that grips the minds of those newly bereaved or rejected in love ( the two emotions can feel similar )
