Diaspora, 16" x 16", Oil on panel

 

This series serves as a symbol of the millions of Palestinians forced out of their land and that now form the largest group of refugees in the world.  Caused by a conflict that has affected generations, there is little hope of returning to exactly what once was.  Each painting depicts a facet of their well-being or of their homes, both of which were deconstructed and have yet to be reformed or rebuilt.
