Lest we forget

Acrylic on Canvas

61 x 46cm

This painting shows silverbeet leaves growing out of an old Army ammo box that is sitting on top of a stack of classic war themed books. On the side is a vintage toy soldier with a trumpet. This work is about the cyclical nature of destruction and rejuvenation.

This work is very dear to me as my dad was an Indian Army officer. Growing up in military cantonments around India, I saw up close the effects of warfare on my dad and his colleagues.
