painting by James Earley

The Place Of The Skull

Original Oil Painting

120cm x 82cm


“The Place of The Skull” won first prize at the London Biennale 2019

The Place of The Skull is a tribute to the child victims of war.I was influenced by Picasso’s Guernica which had a profound affect on me and I wanted to do a modern version of this painting. The Three figures in the background are images of torture victims at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison,
I wanted to show how martyrs are born and how the torture crimes actually fanned the flames of terrorism.
