In this large-scale mixed media work, the promotional posters that form the ground are visible beneath the portrait. Rone also incorporates fragments of wallpaper, a development that foreshadowed his transition to working within domestic environments in projects such as Empty (2016) undertaken in various derelict houses, Omega (2017) in a weatherboard cottage in Alphington and Empire (2019) in the Art Deco mansion at Burnham Beeches.
