Syrian Civil War (2012)

painting by Chris Lockhart

This painting was created in response to the human pain and suffering throughout Syria. It is not my intention to take sides in the conflict. I wouldn’t even begin to suggest that things are that simple. Sometime in 2011, I started following what was happening with the Syrian uprising. That winter, news and photos were being smuggled out of the country from civilians and rebels to show what was happening on a street-level. Individuals of all ages, rebels and otherwise, are caught in situation of intense misery and conflict.

36 in by 52 in, oil on canvas, 2012.
