"Works employ the repeated motif of a misshapen disc floating on either a red or black backdrop. The discs contain blotches and other impurities that are reminiscent of the swirls and patterns of a planet's surface, like the famous Great Red Spot on Jupiter, and the planetary allusion is especially clear in 'Flag', where a three-dimensional Union Jack has been appended to the fiery red surface of the disc, rudely jutting out into the privileged space of the viewer."
