My painting titled ‘Reflections of The Landing of Gallipoli’ is an interpretation of the “sea to shore” pre-dawn landing at Gallipoli.

 

The work depicts the serenity of the first rays of dawn, reflecting as ribbons of light in the water torn by flashes of colour from defensive artillery and ripples where the Australian Soldiers fell – creating distorted reflections of movement in the water and reflections for us, of a moment in time, for all of time.
