What do you see?

Neil Silvester, 38

What do you see? I have included a single piece from a body of work that is intended to highlight both physical and mental torture sustained in conflict. As an ex member of both The British Army and Police Scotland, I feel that we are still a long way away from understanding and providing the correct care for those who are injured whilst serving in their respective fields.

I have opted for a mixture of figurative, abstract and realism in order to portray the correct tension, pain and emotion. By using a combination of brushes and palette knives to create the dynamic marks necessary, I hope that my work is successful in highlighting these very real issues that affect so many.
