Artwork Description

This artwork is a tribute to those in the Naval forces during Pearl Harbour. The piece has two styles featuring a symbolic image of a man in uniform with tears running down his cheeks and a photo realism painting behind the first (viewed through the holes where his sun glasses would be) which is copied from an iconic photographic image of pearl harbour.
My intent in the creation of this piece was to have people see the pain through the eyes of those who have served their countries even when things go awry. Sometimes the relationship between man and sea is a tumultuous one. For those amazing persons who dedicate their lives and wellbeing to the safety of their homelands, we say a big thank you. We see you...we see you now, we see you then, we don't see what you saw but we can see you and how you felt when you didn't see them coming.
I hope this piece can be felt by all of those who view it and opens up a million different stories from those who have served in the Navy. This is to help us all see through their eyes.
