MILITARY ART

My father served in Italy as a gunner with a British regiment.  He was part of a five man crew that served a 25 pound artillery piece, which was the standard allied artillery piece of the  Second World War.  He was sent back to Britain suffering "Shell Shock", which as we know now was a catch all term for any psychiatric disorders brought on as a result of battle.  After a stay in hospital, he served as a Military policeman, stationed in Britain.  He suffered all his life from the experience and often woke us all with nightmares.  We would find him under the bed as he attempted to escape the danger he felt he was in.

My brother also served in Saudi Arabia gathering intelligence, during the Desert Storm conflict.  Most of the 70 odd paintings I have done on the theme of war, are focussed more on the soldier and how he is feeling in the situation he finds himself.  "Mateship" is also a big part of my paintings and many of them contain images of men supporting one another through difficult times.
