A Flame For The Refugees
by Anne Faith Nicholls, 2017
Acrylic on Canvas, 36” x 48”

A Flame For The Refugees was painted in honor of refugees who’ve made, or attempted to make, the dangerous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea, from war-torn countries. Painted shortly after the artist’s time in Hungary and Spain, this work is a symbolic reaction to Europe’s refugee crisis, and contentious history with immigrants. An immigrant herself, Anne Faith Nicholls painted A Flame For The Refugees in honor of, and with empathy and an outstretched hand to refugees and immigrants all around the world.
