The Brexit mermaid. Windows of Rye. 2019. J.Harms. Acrylic on paper. 62×48 cm.

The Windows of Rye paintings are a reflection on Brexit. The term « reflection » is to be taken both literally and figuratively. Brexit was to happen in March of this year, but has been moved back to the end of this month. Will it happen or not ? I think nobody has a clue.

In Greek mythology, any creature that is part female, part something else, is not a good omen. Such creatures will most of the time lead you to your death. If you look at them straight in the eye you will turn to stone, if you give the wrong answer to their question, they will devour you, if you listen to their song you may end up mad and drown  yourself. I wonder what this one will end up doing to Europe and the UK.
