Further information

Karl Hagan's paintings draw inspiration and evoke atrocities caused by conflicts and the use of dangerous weapons. In his captivating figurative or abstract works these atrocities are not explicitly represented, but are subtly evoked or even hinted, thus leaving the works open to different interpretations. 

This piece was inspired in particular by Disasters of Wars, a series of etchings by Francisco Goya.
