Retribution. Gregory John Gregory John
   
Quasi Infinity (the delusion that one is progressing', when in reality, the human condition is more akin to a perpetual merry-go-round. This painting is an expression of the difficulties I had, as a young child and teenager, relating to or recognizing authority and authoritative figures. The figure on the steps is a red robe judge, who, to me, represented authority and hierarchy at that time. In the painting I'm simply reversing the roles of power, imagery which to me influences my thinking, illustrating the fact that, in the wider scheme of things (life and death), the powerful and the powerless share the same destiny, to become equal.
