About the ArtworkA dramatic, emotion-filled piece prompted by the unnecessary brutality of the war in Ukraine. Ross ponders the mind-frame of the soldiers sacrificing themselves on the front line. The horror and darkness of it all. The sense of violence and shock is evident in the colours, texture and movement of the artwork.
"The Ukraine War is yet another example of the inhumanity of dictators and power seekers. I’ve done quite a few paintings of the horrors of past conflicts. It’s hard to imagine the mindset of soldiers in front line trenches fighting for no other reason than to boost the personal egos of Dictators. Better to surrender than die for nothing in my opinion! Hence the subject of this painting".
