This piece is comprised of 9 paintings, each one representing a year in the Iraq war. Each mark was made by scraping away the paint revealing a dark underpainting, and represents a civilian life lost during the U.S. occupation. The colors of the panels are inspired by photographs of the various colors of the Iraq landscape. The paintings are displayed horizontally, like a timeline of the war. A giclee print (30x30") of the nine panels is also available.
