DESCRIPTION

In this series, I reflect on the life of my father, who grew up during the second world war in Austria.

The colours I have chosen in this abstract were derived from seeing the Swiss alps at twilight.

Switzerland borders Austria. In this image, I explore the idea of two similar cultures taking two very different paths during the second world war. Austria joins it's ally and is utterly destroyed, while Switzerland remains Neutral and comes out of the war relatively unscathed.

I have used crafting clay to create the round shape and colour effects to create the varying colours.
