War and conflict are part of humankind for ever it seems. The Great War was considered the war to end all wars at the time. Less than twenty years later it was renamed World war One as World War Two had begun. And since then there have been many wars such as Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. The Cold War is still with us threatening to become a hot war with China and Russia. These contemporary war paintings express how one ordinary individual, the artist, feels about war.
War impacts people and several of these paintings are about the feelings of those affected - they are abstract figure paintings about war.
