“Unfolding Tragedy”

Oil on canvas, 64cm. x  78cm.

I created this abstract work as my response to the dilema of refugees all over the world who leave their homeland in search of safe haven in other countries. The paper boat is my way of representing the type of unseaworthy vessel that many assylum seekers often find themselves crammed into.  It is testement to their desparation; their willingness to risk all for a safer future.

Author: David Carroll - Visual Artist

Born in 1947 in North Wales, David migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. He graduated from Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). Davids artwork is inspired by memory; but rather than depict specific events, he reflects emotional situations, infused by present moments of recollection. In recent times, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his work has taken a new and positive direction. His 'Elemental Representions" use colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create a personal visual story line.
