‘The Survivors’ moves on….

My print ‘The Survivors’ was one of the artworks chosen by the Guelph Museum’s exhibition of artworks related to Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, soldier/physician/poet and his poem ‘In Flanders Fields.’ They subsequently choose it for the cover of the Exhibition Catalogue.

Now the Ontario Legislature has asked to include it as one of the artworks in their Remembrance Day resources.   …..my buzz du jour.

“To me the poem conjures up visions of more than poppies and crosses. I envision the other casualties of war, of the long lines of refugees and of wounded soldiers returning to their homes. I see the shells of buildings and a landscape badly scarred.

My print was for ‘The Survivors’, for those people who, having survived, were now ready to move forward towards a sparse landscape but one with a promise of better things to come.”
