The Lubicon Expect Fair Play From The Government, by Helen Andersen. Oil pastel on paper
Helen labelled this piece a diptych and the two parts were matted together as you see in the original frame. A new frame was required and I managed to crack the first piece of glass and muff the cutting of the double opening mat on my first attempt. The frame in 40 inches wide.
With Danica’s help, the job eventually worked out and the result is very impressive. Members of the Lubicon First Nation are shown in full regalia, with protest flags adding more colour.
