Silences

Acrylic & Enamel on MDF

90cm Diameter

As we face the battle against a silent enemy – Coronavirus, I have been inspired by the silent ceremony we offer in respecting and celebrating the bravery and sacrifice of the fallen soldiers and the significance of 11-11.

I have super imposed it on a stylized, viral representation of the traditional symbol of remembrance poppy wreath.

Now more than ever, we are being asked to call on the prevailing qualities of the soldiers who fought in the Gallipoli campaign – “courage, comradeship, and respect” as we fight this silent enemy to preserve the human race.
