The image below is what one of the images I submitted for the Laurentian Magazine. The theme they gave us was ‘Transcending Reality’ . I really like children’s drawings because they are always so innocent and funny. I thought it would interesting to play around with imagery of soldiers/ policemen and childlike drawing. The little girl is running. I might play around with this idea a little bit.
How does this Transcend Reality? Well it challenges my comfortable reality, and makes me aware of the reality of many children around the world. It’s supposed to be thought provoking, but not disturbing.
