The Cold Room No 4 – Rust Never Sleeps

The Cold Room 4 - Rust Never Sleeps bullet hole wall with red poppy oil painting by Australian artist Merry Sparks

Who has this metal wall protected?

The battle is over and all is quiet for now, yet the bullet holes which have rusted over time remind us of the anger, hatred, pain, sadness and wasted life of war.  In juxtaposition to the rusted bullet holes, the poppy symbolizes respect for the victims and soldiers who fought or died.

This is a contemporary issue.

In the name of liberty, lest we forget our soldiers who help to protect us from terrorists and criminals who plot to undermine equilibrium in the world.
