This is a triptych from my Army Parade series. These paintings depict marines, infantry, and pilots marching in a parade. When a man joins the ranks of soldier he becomes just a pawn. The same clothes, activities, and hopes. The man loses his individuality but gets a belonging to the community. These acrylic paintings were made in 2011. The size of each canvas is 130 x 162 cm.
