ORIGINAL ARTWORK: Lockdown! Lockdown! (unexpurgated version)
Genuine one-off collage artwork signed by Greg Moodie. This multi-layered piece was photographed and published in The National on March 23rd 2020. It was created using traditional cut and paste techniques with an overall page size of 425 x 560mm. Rare and highly collectable.
This cartoon was “cleaned up” for newspaper publication. The collage version here is the original unexpurgated version. Contains a wide array of collage material and a subliminal message written in UV ink around the perimeter.
The particular story features the Prime Minister and his chief adviser, Dominic Cummings aka The Dominator, as well as Gordon Brown.
The artist’s comment: ‘It was reported that Boris Johnson’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings’s UK government coronavirus strategy could be summarised as “herd immunity, protect the economy, and if that means some pensioners die, too bad.” When health chiefs pointed out how devastating this would be for the population, they eventually saw sense and called for all bars and restaurants to be closed.’
