The artist has written that 'With this particular painting I was pitching a sense of my own past against a sentimental tourist postcard version of a part of Irish culture. In the appropriation of a tourist artefact, I was interested in questions which may arise within the construction of identity and cultural identity; and also to what extent the audience or tourist plays in the conception of such images.'
