The Red Tops series revels in British vernacular saucy postcard humour, an ignoble ‘fnarr fnarr’ tradition that has been embraced by the headline writers of tabloid newspapers such as The Sun and The Daily Mirror. The ground for the paintings is a series of these tabloids, all of which feature crassly newsworthy moments from recent royal history. These are overlaid with painted and drawn images from the ever-repeating Tudor era as revisited by British theatre, film and design.
