The first in the collection this piece of work is inspired by Antoinette Jordaine's upbringing as a Londoner of mixed heritage. Not only is Encona Hot Pepper Sauce a condiment she has grown up with, it is a staple in most of her friend's households of different backgrounds and heritage. It is now also often found in many London restaurants as a standard condiment along with the faithful tomato sauce. No matter your background, ethnicity, or race Antoinette Jordaine feels this is a prime example of how beautifully multi-cultural her city is.
With loving encouragement from her then partner to pursue painting this now seemingly very British hot pepper sauce, Antoinette Jordaine began this piece in 2016. She then paused painting the piece due to the very painful breakdown of the relationship. As a young child, Antoinette Jordaine often played with and collected bottles. She grew to very much appreciate the design of bottles and enjoy the symbolism that they are a vessel with each one having a layer of messaging which often evokes memories. In 2017 Antoinette Jordaine decided that she would finish the painting and continue with a series of bottles that reflect the men who have truly touched her heart.
