Between Two Worlds

Immerse yourself in the visual world of three contemporary artists who explore the experience of being a recent veteran. Traversing painting, sculpture and street art, each artist interrogates notions of identity, dislocation and resilience. 

Art has become a powerful voice for these veterans. Finding a therapeutic benefit in the creative process, they have developed a unique visual language to represent both their own personal experiences and shared issues facing many young service men and women today. 

Through a mixture of humour, subtlety and vibrantly rich iconography, their art represents a conversation between the wider veteran community and those of us who have never served.
