'What we see through the window' Myanmar series
Through 2020 and 2021 many Myanmar people - especially the elderly and the young - have been forced to stay inside their homes, first due to COVID-19 restrictions and then after the brutal military coup in February 2021. They have watched life, including protests and military crackdowns, through their windows. The paintings are interpretations of Myanmar people looking at scenes of sadness, fear and hope outside. The drawings are of the ubiquitous three fingered salute of resistance to the military coup. Inspiration was drawn from various photographs in the media.
