This is a mixed media painting (acrylic, oil paint on canvas). 60cm x 50cm.
Alida : "The work is part of a tryptic, which wants to protest war and violence and thus calls for peace.
In 1944 a unit of the German Waffen SS surrounded the village of Oradour sur Glane in Belgium. Their bullets and fire killed 642 men, women and children. In memory of this drama, the village of Oradour sur Glan has been preserved in its destroyed state since 1944.
My flexible processing of this drama at "Oradour sur Glane" shows a ruin, a memorable date, a memorial, a monument and the distorted remains of the tower bell of the church that became an inferno for the hostage villagers."
