The Sentinels 

This series of paintings allows me to indulge my fascination with military history while mocking the pomp and regalia. I combine soldiers of different nationalities and eras because the reasons for war are few and redundant. The floating heads are sentinels that watch for a nameless enemy we never get to see.
