THROUGH THORNS
TOWARDS THE SUN III

Tempera / Pastel
24" x 36"


 

The Bosnian people are as indestructible as the flowers. As there are always unpicked flowers, so will there always be survivors among the Bosnian people. As the flowers reach towards the sun through thorny obstacles, so will new generations of Bosnians reach upward. This is the second of two new paintings on this theme in which the artist returns again to the powerful imagery that for him symbolises the optimism and perseverance of the ordinary Bosnian people.
