Francis ODonnell's avatar Francis ODonnell

2012 Guernica Redux - The End of Times , Has not of yet been documented . So I've provided an overview of other works ! "Guernica " is an homage to Picassio's famous antiwar proclamation . Painted on a large scale it protrays the Horrfic events of a man made Apocalypse , This painting would be at home in the studio of Hieronymus Bosch , in fact this work has many Fathers ,Munch's "Scream " or Goya's series of etching " The disasters of War " & " Shooting of May 3rds " blood runs through this paintings veins . It contains many figures in different vingettes . I've painted it bold and simply , reminiscent of the propaganda posters of the 1930s 40s .To some extent this softens the terrible images reveiled , to further remove Us from reality I've restricted my palette to the use of three colors - red , white & black , with one exception , an old man sits on his hands upon on a light blue military helmet - He represents the World & the Helmet ,The United Nations knowing but unwilling Act !
