The painting is a perfect example for Fiona Rae's interest in seemingly irreconcilable moments and aspects in painting. The artist states: "I am intrigued by the juxtaposition of high and low, of serious and comic, of familiar and esoteric, and what that might mean and suggest when found together in a painting or a title."
