N.Ireland Troubles-Conflict.
Gerry Gleason.
Oil on canvas.

This work deals obliquely with the historical siege of Derry. When I researched the siege it appeared to be at times a heady mix of history and folklore, sometimes it was difficult to separate one from the other. I felt that history had also cast its shadow from the past into present during the troubles. At times pivotal events occurred there which had far reaching effects on the troubles.
I wish the city and its people good luck and a peaceful future.
