Some events in history leave echoes which resonate through time and mind. Yet it is not always the most obvious action which leaves the greatest impression. This painting represents those echoes.
In the background looms a circular motion, subtle and foreboding, the suggestion of a barrel of a gun inviting the viewer to explore aspects of that day; the celebration and ticker tape synonymous with American parades.
The geometric patterns symbolise a city skyline, flashes of white gunshots and the ensuing crimson tide. Above is the dawning of a new era; casting out shadows and bringing hope.
