Artist's description:

Mixed-media prize 2015 (runner-up) at Art Academy (London Bridge).

This piece is reflection on the Syrian War and the carpet-bombing of Homs. I imagine a derelict swimming pool at the top of the composition - perhaps in the hope that it could be used again some day. I am intrigued by how hope survives horror - sometimes. It is not meant to be politically partisan, just a general expression of disgust at war - something we all share.

The image is made of general debris from packaging and other waste, glued onto MDF and painted over in acrylic.

It is very much a 2D to 3D piece, almost a bas-relief.

Materials used:

Packaging waste, general debris, glue, filler, acrylic paint

Pool (2015)
