‘Safe Passage’ 16th April – 5th May
Recently the emphasis of my new body of work is about looking at connections to the sea with a much wider focus. The needless loss of life at sea is an in-escapable current concern. Movement of people across Europe and globally feature in a new series of artwork engaging with these issues of mortality. An emotive exhibition that looks at the treacherous journeys people are enduring. Please click on the link below to see some of the new series of paintings.
This exhibition will also be displaying copies of paintings made by Syrian children aged between 6-16, living in refugee camps in Lebanon. Some of the artworks reflect the trauma that the young people have experienced, while others are more hopeful and optimistic. This exhibition has been kindly lent by organiser Baraa Ehsaan Kouja, a Syrian student at the University of Exeter. Founder of the initiative: http://fromsyriawithlove.com/
