Desperate Crossing

This series of acrylic paintings imagines the plight of desperate economic migrants and refugees leaving their home countries for an uncertain future. These brave souls are risking everything to forge ahead. The haunting images of families crammed onto rickey boats and trekking through borders throughout Europe is devastating.

The diverse figures in these paintings are crowded, confused and determined. There is chaos all around them, coming at them from all angles but there is also hope, camaraderie and compassion.
