The Housing Covenant: Beneath the Sheltering Sky

2010   123 x 273 cms   NFS

 
The inadequate housing at Whitegate has continued since my first encounter. Inspite of successive governmental promises to provide appropriate housing, including those made under the Federal Government's Intervention program, the situation remains as depicted. Using Masaccio's, Tribute Money, 1420, as a fiat to structure the work, I have the government officials, on deck, with fresh 'paper' ideas, and the doubting gazes of the Hayes men echoing the pulse of alternating eye contact the disciples fix on either Christ or the Tax Collector.
