Acrylic painting War Story by Linda Finn

War Story

"War Story" features an image of a WW1 soldier on horseback who was in the Cavalry. It includes a page from a letter written after the battle of Vimy Ridge, with a medal given to this soldier after the war. The format echoes the format of a book, using acrylic paint and mediums to mimic an encaustic technique  on plywood. The WW1 medal, safety pin, and photo transfer on aluminum appear embedded in wax, as if seen through the veil of memory.
