HSC year: 2004, ARTEXPRESS year: 2005
Expressive form: Painting
On 20 March 2003 Iraq was invaded. Saddam is gone but the conflict continues: 12,611 Iraqi civilian casualties, and countless cultural relics lost.
I have used texture and colour to simulate the Iraqi landscape. Islamic arches disintegrate, replaced by prison bars. Photographs show Iraqis inside Coke bottles symbolising their loss of freedom and the impact of Western ideals.
I ask: what are the long-term implications of our actions?
