In Diversified Cultural Worker 8, Hetherington’s disembodied hat and necklace draw upon the cultural values associated with certain objects and fashions. In this way, Hetherington’s composition becomes both a portrait and still life, translating the life-style aspiration aspects of still life into props for character adaptation. Hetherington embeds these motifs within a dynamic field of garish colour that is simultaneously opulent and savage. Layers of intensified hues congregate in carnal textures reminiscent of baroque high drama, blurring notions of decadence, banality, and violence.
