Help for Heroes Triptych

On Monday 9th November 2015, the Chief Liaison Officer at Headley Court arrived at my studio in Suffolk to collect the triptych I have donated to Headley Court, the military rehabilitation centre for injured soldiers in Surrey.     Though Headley Court itself is due to close in a few years' time, the paintings will hang there until the new rehabilitation centre will take its place at Stanford Hall, in Leicestershire, where the paintings are eventually destined when it opens in 2018.

 

This triptych was painted to convey the messages that the injured soldiers themselves who were patients at Headley Court at the time wished to express, and aims to give encouragement and hope to new patients arriving at the rehabilitation centre after serious injury.

 

The central panel depicts soldiers having a good time socialising in a bar.

The lefthand panel shows where they have been in Afghanistan and shows a Chinook rescue operation in the desert.

The right hand panel shows a charity trek to the Arctic with Prince Harry - the message being that even with missing limbs, these injured service men and women are able to do extreme sporting and physically demanding activities, post injury.

The triptych has been gratefully received with the following thank you letter:

Looking at and portraying disfigurement'
