Deanna Petherbridge, Destruction of the City of Homs triptych, 2016

‘This is a symbolic work, but it still demanded that I drew every inch of its surface with an immense attention to detail, as if, by so doing, I could commemorate all the imaginary people and their activities.’ – Deanna Petherbridge on her triptych, The Destruction of the City of Homs.
