Artist's Description

oil on floorboards 1993
This painting, one of several using the ripped up floorboards of my rotting tenement flat in Dundee, was my reaction to a young boy on the news who swore to murder the men who killed his family during the Yugoslavian civil war.
I was horrified to see innocence being ripped from his heart and replaced by revenge and hatred.
Sixteen years on, I wonder how that boy has grown. Who can say if he has made a peaceful life for himself. I hope so.
The red emblem on the hat was a symbol painted on the houses that had been ‘cleansed’ by the murdering armies.
