Oil on Canvas  152 cm x 121 cm

Mars, God of War, the Universal Soldier who transcends time, charges through glass or portal passing from history into the present and sadly into the future. Wars of the modern era driven by the greed for oil represented here by the spectrum colours of the rubble. The naked bodies show the vulnerability of the innocent. Some of the inspiration for this piece came from the 7th July attacks on the London Underground.

This is a series on explosions and rubble.
