This visually rich painting is loaded with symbolic references to art history, mythology, politics and the dynamics of power—including an axe in a bundle of sticks, the symbol used by the Italian fascists of the 20th century. Love's unique style incorporates multiple techniques—hyperrealism, gestural brushstrokes and a signature flat, cartoonish line—to create cohesive and dynamic compositions.
