A project inspired by the work of Picasso that started it's life as drawings of historical wars several years ago, has since evolved into La Guerra, an exploration into how the inharmonious and dysfunctional expression of cubism could help convey the insanity of war.

For centuries artists have been recreating battlefields in their studios, but the result is often a clinical execution of an event that in reality was chaos (the exception perhaps being Medieval tapestries that go some way to express disorder). Through this project I sought to negate the reliance on the visual appearance of war that the film industry does so well, and instead find a way to communicate how war bombards the senses. Through cubism I hoped to express the smell, heat, taste and pain that conflict brings with it.
