The Old General in a Frenzy Over the Girl
The Old General in a Frenzy over the Girl is Dowdeswell's sardonic take on the corruption of power. Borrowing a figure from Malevich's The Knife Grinder Thomas has brought to life a huffing and puffing corrupt old general who is in a frenzy at the sight of a girl in a red dress symbolised in the left hand side of the canvas.
