Richard Lewer – Richard’s Disasters, a true story

Richard Lewer, After art school my friend Charlotte and I took off on our big OE. Just before we flew out, I had procedure to remove a lump on my ear, and left New Zealand with a large bandage around my head. On the stopover in Abu Dhabi, I removed the bandage, as after 20 hours of flying it was pretty hot and uncomfortable. As we were called to the departure lounge, a team of seriously scary-looking airport security guys with guns approached us and began to question me on the whereabouts of the bandage and reason for removal. It goes without saying I was very relieved when I was allowed to re-board that flight to London., 2020, oil on brass, 50 x 50 cm
