WAFTA members’ exhibition 2015 Memory and Commemoration
The exhibition theme was chosen as a broad spectrum theme (honour, celebration, tribute, reminiscence, recollection and memorial) to embrace those who came before us and give expression to events that shaped our lives.
The theme allows free range to members’ creativity in whatever medium they choose.
My work – Last Post.
The haunting melody of the Last Post, silence and then the Rouse, allows us the solitude to commemorate the war dead and remember our loved ones.
I have deliberately chosen to keep this work simple to allow viewers their own time of contemplation, to identify with their own feelings and memories associated with the Last Post. I have been influenced by the simple lines of the lists of soldier’s names on memorial walls throughout the world. Silk organza was used to convey the ethereal quality of memory.
