The Common Weal represents the collaborative relationships within the British Commonwealth. The overall design of The Common Weal takes inspiration from rose stained glass windows of Gothic architecture. Stained glass windows of this period were beautifully ornate and rich with symbolism - the colours and imagery could be read as if they were stories. Flags in themselves are deeply interesting in their history and symbolism and this was the natural starting point for this piece. The circular structure of the whole piece, with all flags connected by ‘black leading’ alludes to the Commonwealth core principles of unity and equality. As well as all flags being represented, other motifs include the dove and olive branch which are classic symbols of piece.
This painting was recently exhibited at the Art of Communication Exhibition at 44AD Artspace in Bath.
