War of Milk
190X250cm / 74.8x98.4 in, oil on canvas, 2011
At first glance, this is an idyllic landscape: a mountain range in the distance, sunset light rays beaming through the whole picture, a beautiful and peaceful little girl enjoying the simple pleasure of playing in the grass. The entire picture is framed by the huge body of a cow. It's legs and belly act as a viewing frame for pur eyes - forced perspective obliges us yo be at the same level as the little girl and to see the world from her point of view. And then, the horror of war appears: fighter jets drop bombs on what appears to be a convoy of trucks and a small village in the distance. The peace is disrupted in an erruption of violence and force.
