THE VOICE OF MY CHILD
A painting inspired by Benjamin Britten’s theatrical music drama, ‘Curlew River”. The spirit voice of a dead child is heard by his grieving mother. The theatricality and pathos of this wonderful church parable stays with me. This piece explores the mystical, the unknown world beyond the life we live in.The painting is float mounted in a lime washed wood box frame.
