This painting is of an American Soldier carrying an Iraqi child in his arms. The image is a powerful exploration into the cost of war - not just for those who partake in fighting, but also from those caught up in the crossfire - something labelled as Collateral Damage.
This image was created as part of a series of works exploring the Iraqi conflict and the cost it has had upon all our lives and the political unrest that has endured ever since. This polemical work is painted in greytone with a blue glaze -representing calm, being the opposite of the image.
This painting is professionally framed in a black frame and ready to hang.
