Us and Them

14" x 11", oil on wood panel, 2014

Much of my WWI painting project conveys an over all theme and this painting's sentiment was essentially my conclusion about war in general, the words in the piece specifically inspired by "Us and Them" by Pink Floyd (and also a little bit by "Where Are We Now?" by David Bowie). This angry skull really wants conflict in perpetuity, but we can deny it through empathy for our fellow humans.
