“The Battle between Carnival and Lent is a depiction of greed and foolishness, hypocrisy, falseness, idiotic excess and mockery. That is why it seemed a fitting image for these times. But the image also contains a liveliness and wit that makes it impossible to despair. The image is a copy of Pieter Breughel's painting of the same name - it shows the contrast of virtue and vice; self-denial versus self-indulgence, and the folly of both.” - Cecily Brown, 2017
