Agent Orange Self Portrait Victor Gordon

Agent Orange – 2016

Oil on canvas – 75.7 x 122cm

Self portrait of the artist. Puffed-up with self importance, the artist sports a formal dinner jacket with a secret police T shirt peeking through underneath. On the jacket he wears a medal made from an anzac biscuit and the ribbon is a branded teabag. Formal gloves and walking stick complement the attire but the informal pyjama pants are reminiscent of concentration camp inmates clothing.. Ugh boots and a nineteen thirties English rowing cap complete his outfit. On the floor is a brass drain, the only mode of escape. In a final touch, on a pedestal table is the dried seed pod arrangement of the Lunaria Annua in a testicular-shaped vase. Colloquially known as honesty the artist is just touched by it.
