Portraits of Sacrifice Series, 2011
162 Wax Crayon and Graphite Drawings on Notepaper, 8.5" x 11"
This is my small tribute to those brave Canadians who have lost their lives in Afghanistan.
These drawings are my way of saying thank you and to honour those heroes.
Each drawn, on the day of the news of their death. Each taking only a couple of quiet reflective moments to complete.
A quick drawing, identifying each with their first name. It's a lot of names. Far too many.
I hope that no one is, in anyway offended or upset, the work was designed to humanize these figures I would learn about on the news.
Doing this was really just about putting the war and its toll in perspective for myself.
