Artwork Description

These 'things' that occur day in, day out to thousands of people who cannot talk about them because firstly, There can never be total closure for the victim, because the psychological pain and trauma remains, exacerbated by 'secondary victimization, primarily stigmatization, isolation, abandonment and condemnation.
and secondly, the lack of knowledge and compassion of people, many of which are of the 'just world hypothesis' those that believe that the world is intrinsically fair, do not wish to believe the callousness that so many humans can inflict on others. They would rather sweep those 'unpleasantries' under their fairytale rugs.
I hope to be 'A' voice on the victims/survivors behalf, so I dedicate these paintings to them.

You create powerful images of life at its worst. Hopefully you are not a product of your art. If so my heart goes out to you.
