-  Displaced

Oil on Linen 25cmx50cm

From a photograph by Peter Hart


The refugees in Blue Nile, South Sudan.

I wanted to catch their isolation, seemingly hopeless situation. Yet, let their vitality and will to live dominate.

I didn’t have the large canvas I would have preferred, but perhaps being restricted in what I had available to use, is itself an extension of the subject?

I used a light, sketching, style to reinforce the transient nature of the refugees, floating in the space of the canvas.
