Post-ironic Salmond Love
Portrait of Alex Salmond, former first minister of Scotland. This digital artwork was created from a photograph I took of Alex Salmond with a group of young voters in Orkney in 2014. He encouraged them to look into the lens and think “I love you”, which made for a photograph with many genuine smiles and inspired me to make this picture as an ironic joke. Given the events of the last few years I now view this picture as being beyond irony.
