The Wall

Piece description from the artist

This painting was made to honor the memory of the service men and women who sacrificed their lives during the Vietnam War. It was inspired from a visit to the wall in 1996. While there I witnessed people in exactly the same positions as depicted in the painting. In particular you'll see a Grandson on the shoulders of his father, both are standing next to the grandfather. The grandson is etching the name of his grandfather's other son, who made the supreme sacrifice. While viewing this seen, I wondered if the fallen son was also reaching out to his father. So, within the portrait I placed the reflection of the statues of the soldiers such that statue, depicting the fallen son, was reaching back, through the veil, to touch his father's hand.
