Photorealism can be used to not only convey beautiful shiny reflective things but communicate an idea. This painting depicts a sun burnt Australian soldier on top of a vehicle manning a machine-gun as another soldier stands further back in their vehicle as they patrol the streets of Dili, the capitol of East Timor. The soldiers were there as part of the INTERFET forces which were to protect the local population from murderous Indonesions after they had been forced to leave after a successful vote for independence.
Please note: This painting has an abstract painting - Jungle 1 on the reverse side.
