ISWASWILLBE is an exhibit of paintings by Geoffrey Laurence that represent his reflections on his family’s experiences in the Holocaust and the trauma that endures after war.
“My effort to find imagery that does not exploit or trivialize the experiences of those that suffered but that does in a deep way connect with the pain and suffering that was inflicted, has been my main concern. I seek to connect emotionally so that I can best interpret the reality of the events that took place and communicate them in the hopes that they will not be repeated. To find a lexicon that for me has truth and, above all meaning, in relation to this historical tragedy continues to be my utmost desire.” — Artist Geoffrey Laurence
