Illuminati Neon - artist Mark Sloper - has created a new piece in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, celebrating her life's achievements within its collaged background. Simply titled 'Elizabeth', the piece is bright and colourful, which, as Mark says, "remembers the Queen’s beautiful smile and garners memories of happy times”. The limited edition piece naturally features his unique touches of bejewelled nose ring, necklace and tattoo, mixing Mark's punk roots with the image of an eternal icon.
'Elizabeth' is hand-embellished with gems and printed onto aluminium, giving the piece a whole new level of depth, colour, and texture. It is framed in a suitably majestic gold baroque style. A donation of £100 from the sale of every piece will be made to the British Red Cross, the organisation the late Queen was patron of for over seven decades.
The late monarch has been a regular feature in Illuminati Neon work, with Mark's previous hand-embellished canvasses influenced by the English artist and anarchist Jamie Reid, whose controversial ‘God Save the Queen’ album artwork for the Sex Pistols was based on Cecil Beaton’s Silver Jubilee portrait. Says Mark: “My art punk Queens are beautifully constructed with sparkling jewels, newspaper headlines and the fabulous Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II looking splendid and regal, but of course retaining a little punky attitude.”
Queen Elizabeth has been a patron of the British Red Cross since 1949, when she became Patron of the British Junior Red Cross when she was still Princess Elizabeth. More recently, she praised the charity's work during the Covid pandemic, saying that British Red Cross staff and volunteers were "valued and greatly appreciated". This is why Castle Fine Art is proud to make a donation of £100 to the charity with every purchase of 'Elizabeth'.
"'Elizabeth' remembers the Queen’s beautiful smile and garners memories of happy times."
