This oil painting is an allegorical work and symbolizes the resurgence of right-wing extremism in Britain and the resistance to it. I derived his imagery from my own photograph, taken of two young surfers on the Sussex coast, together with film footage found in Leni Riefenstahl's notorious Nazi propaganda film 'Triumph of the Will'. Like other paintings made at this time, I have rendered the imagery with broad brushstrokes and high-key colour, even applying paint directly from a tube.
