Working the Red Carpet
'Working the Red Carpet' is a playful collage, which illustrates the Kings and Queens of England from Alfred the Great to the current Queen, all interacting with each other on the red carpet. The aim of the collage was to ultimately gather all the monarchs together in one contemporary scene and see how they and the audience would react and whether their egos would get along. The work is available for sale at The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, Wimbledon. For further information see www.thecynthiacorbettgallery.com.
