IN FLANDERS FIELDS draws upon the first two lines of John McCrae’s iconic World War I poem: “In Flanders fields the poppies blow/Between the crosses, row on row”. For me, the visual image created by these lines has always been a very calm, organized and almost static one. It is an image of the dead, not of their dying. With my IN FLANDERS FIELDS I try to shift the focus backward in time from the orderly to the chaos of death. I hope John McCrae would understand and approve.
