11 November 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War.

All portraits in the exhibition are accompanied by incredible personal stories and these narratives by the servicemen and women are as important as the paintings. The accounts are of survivors, representing millions of untold stories from the First World War to the present day. The men and women who look out at us are dignified, determined and stoical. They bear witness to many of the horrors of war but they take pride in having done their duty serving their country.

The sitters range in age from a 100 year old serviceman who was at Dunkirk to a 13 year old female sea cadet whose dream in life is to join the Navy.

In exploring some of the horrors of conflict, Tom is capable of creating objects and paintings of great beauty. He does not glorify war, but in this exhibition of soldiers, he honours the ordinary men and women who do extraordinary things. It is a fitting memorial to them all and to the centenary of the end of the “war to end all wars”.
