A screen printed piece depicting Lucretia, a legend and iconic feminist idol. She was a noblewoman in ancient Rome, whose rape and consequent suicide led to a rebellion that overthrew the Roman monarchy.
Hand-painted writing in metallic gold ink reads, Nulli Concedo (I yield to nobody).
I felt an urge to make a piece that was within my 'Ultraviolence' series, work looking into classical art and the amount of savage violence depicted in every scenario.
Spraypainted background, layered with a 1-colour screenprint and hand finished with bronze paint lettering and watercolour paint.
