"I have a close connection to The Smiths from my teens and decided to build my piece around the lyrics to their song ”There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” and in particular around the lines below.

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

It’s a song with many layers and I tried to get as much as possible into the image. I used the pink triangle to draw the eye to the crash, but also to touch on the homosexual overtones. Another very subtle detail is the Vauxhall Astra. Apart from being a British car manufacturer, Vauxhall is also referenced in the title of Morrissey’s 4th solo album ”Vauxhall and I” and an area of London noted for its gay clubs." - Jakob Westman
