Oil Paintings By John Fisher (2015)   The triptych was inspired by listening to poetry readings, information gathering and observations in the battlefield areas of Flanders during the War Poets Association tour in October 2014. The title of the triptych is taken from the theme for that visit.I have given emphasis to images which can still be seen today: cemetery architecture and sculptures at the battlefield sites, war memorials, relics in museums, old black and white photographs. I also make reference to the “Sea of Poppies” art work which first appeared at the Tower of London in 2014.”
