Never Forget

Gail Bokor's avatar Gail Bokor

"Never Forget" is a mixed media painting which deals with three tragic events in our human history in which masses of souls were eliminated. The message of this painting is delivered by the mighty elephant, who is known to have an incredible memory, to remind us that these events could easily be repeated. We want to be mindful of present day events of intolerance and non-acceptance that are the very seeds that produced the poison fruit of these atrocities of the past. I have chosen the elephant, who has dealt with his own suffering and horror as well, to be the carrier of my painting's message. The piece is 31"X49", acrylic and watercolor painted on wood, with graphite, collage, photo transfer, stampings and stencils.
