Dressed in white like a pair of covetous bridesmaids, and grinning like Cinderella’s sisters, two women step forward to bathe in the acclaim of an unseen audience. The painting’s title, Grammy, refers to the annual American music industry awards ceremony. Portraying her would-be glamorous subjects in thick, slobbering paint, Boakye repackages them as ten-a-penny celebrities of questionable talent or significance, passing plankton on which contemporary life’s insatiable hunger for stardom briefly stops to feed.
