There is no precise accepted definition of the concept of exploitation. These paintings conspire to show a satirical response to recent events playing out in the UK. Since Brexit, we witness a country deeply divided by class, place and age and a process that reveals England’s perfidy over Ireland.

“In his brief time in office Mr Johnson has behaved outrageously. He has lied to the Queen, lied about Brexit and runs scared of serious interrogation. He is a divisive figure with a record of deliberately offensive comments. He bullies institutions .. and the judiciary for daring to hold him to account. .. Hate and division have flourished under him. The claim that he can bring Britain together is risible…” The Guardian Tuesday 10th December 2019
