The war in Yugoslavia is the subject of this work.

Children Looking At A Naked Chicken
This painting is about the progress and cost of science . The invention of a bald or featherless chicken was in an article about making convenience food more convenient to the farmer and consumer. Zoe says I wanted to have the children participating in a small ceremony of some kind, a mock wedding, at school, mimicking adult behavior, then I wanted the chicken to pass by, lost and naked. We don’t seem to see what we have in life and how fragile and valuable it is.
A figure sleeps in the landscape, a white dove flies from her head, resting on a pillow of fish, (a symbol for the souls of the dead). Behind her, a figure stands with a blackbird, waiting. Here the artist tries to record where we go in our sleep, where reality and dreams meet, and how it links us
to the past.
