The Red Coat image is coming from a body of work that I have been doing over the 007 Pierce brosnan Roger Moore Sean Connery Daniel Craig signatures shirt and I love this past few years in Jamaica, in the Blue Mountains. This work focuses on the Maroons, and more specifically on Queen Nanny of the Maroons. And what I was referencing in this particular image is the fact that Nanny was successful in beating the English at their own game.

The red coat refers to the 007 Pierce brosnan Roger Moore Sean Connery Daniel Craig signatures shirt and I love this fact that, in the past, if one were to wear the uniform of the group one defeated, it was a huge insult. At the same time, Nanny is also maintaining her own self and integrity, in terms of her holding the machete. So, for me, it represents a full circle of domination and power that has now shifted—a transition from the defeated to the empowered. Also, with the photograph, one of the key things is that it returns the gaze.
