Katie Brookes | The Divorce of Fanny and Mike | Studio17, 2019 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Katie's paintings are a response to Britain leaving the European Union: "Fanny in Latin is the name for a female meaning of 'from France' and Mike/Michael in Latin is a male name for an angel - Britain was once, in Latin, called the Land of Angels - so the couple and the two sides of the channel break apart in the title this show which opens on the 'proposed' divorce date, the 29th of March 2019. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Having lived on both sides of the channel, these paintings are a response to the stereotypical 'Britishness' that led to the saddening vote of 2016. The paintings bring together my observations of the events leading up to and since the vote and bring together references from both the United Kingdom and Belgium". | Ps: Fanny and Mike are real people, the photos were found by the artist!
