Homecoming

Saved, gouache, oils, acrylic, fiber, 12" x16", 2014

Saved came from a N.Y. Times photograph of a girl, age three, who had been pulled from rubble after a bombing in Aleppo, Syria and was reunited with her father. The intensity of their connection, the way in wh ich their bodies fuse, and the mixture of sadness and relief in both of their faces compelled me to paint their story.

The background in which they are placed is all my fantasy as I thought about bombed holes in cement walls.
