With Out Land
to Defend, 2003: I wanted to paint a solider that was
either at the top or the bottom. Did he have no land to defend
because he had won it all? Or did he have no land because
he lost it?
Study for Paris
Woodford Vermont, 2003: I wanted to make a piece that showed
the exact moment in which a soldier's life was taken.
Heimat (The Old Country),
2003: This piece was started on an emotionaly hard day for myself
and I wanted to do a work that was as depressing as I could.
The middle solider is looking right out at the viewer, almost
asking 'why not you? The title came when I realized that I did
a terrible job of drawing the feet of one of the dead soldiers
and that it looked like an early Georg Baselitz painting.
