This large-scale canvas replete with a kaleidoscopic palette of primary colours: red, blue and yellow, is combined with overlaid orange text:
I used to chase cars
They said if I caught one
I would not know what to do with it
F F F Fuck ‘EM
I juss wanna
Prove ‘em Wrong
The canvas resembles a comic-book storyboard: a grinning, sunglasses-clad dingo (Hookey’s alter-ego) takes centre stage in a vignette-like portal. Above the canine in the top left-hand corner of the canvas, a speeding, shiny, ﬂash, red car – emblazoned with ‘Flamin’ Jaffa’ (an Indigenous colloquial term for any fast red car, ﬁlled with dark/chocolate-skinned people) – is skimming across the road’s surface, the dingo at the wheel and two comely young Aboriginal women in the back seat. The car is travelling so fast that the roadside markers ﬂy off in the car’s wake, and musical notes and empty VB stubby bottles are left in the vehicle’s jet stream.
