Tata Ma Chance, Tata Ma Millions is an advertising slogan for the South African lottery. â€œThe title is a cynical reference to an oft-prevailing attitude that positions of political power are also a route to financial wealth. A culture of graft and entitlement amongst senior civil servants is the subject matter of this painting.â€ Busuttil uses the properties of the paint itself, rather than just the image, to manifest critique. Caked on with grotesque impasto, her figure becomes a physical incarnation, a literal mountain of tarnishing brush strokes. The faux-naive drafting and simple bright colours lend a paradoxically sinister air to his ridiculed persona; his gluttonous jowls and slot-machine mouth belie the polish of his fashionably funky attire.
