The war in Syria started in 2011.
Currently over half the population has fled the country.
There are over 4 million refugees.
What is left is ruins covered in concrete dust
The largest of my parchment paintings at 2025mm x 1000mm, this painting is part of an ongoing series of works documenting changing urban landscapes caused by decay, demolition, regeneration, construction and overdevelopment.
Driven by the emotion from the images of these Syrian towns and cities destroyed by the bombing and the fleeing of their populations. The way the towns and cities were transformed into desolate wastelands in a matter of days and weeks. The work was an emotional journey into the lives of the fleeing refugees.
