I have been fascinated with WWI and it’s aftermath ever since my grandfather gave me the diary he kept through the year of 1918. I see WWI and WW2 as one conflict interrupted by a brief intermission. I don’t think it has ended yet – most wars of the 20th C and nearly every current conflict on the planet can be traced back to the Treaty of Versailles.
These themes emerge in different ways in many of my paintings, sometimes more obviously than others, but they are often present.
