I made this oil painting as a response to Brexit, and what I perceived as the disturbing rise of right wing extremism in the UK. The central image combines the front page of the Daily Mail newspaper with a still from Leni Riefenstahl's infamous 1935 Nazi propaganda film "Triumph of the Will". The headline, "Enemies of the People", was in fact used by this newspaper to describe English judges. It is also a phrase which was once used by the Nazi, Reinhard Heydrich, in his bid to "Germanize" the Czech people.
