On the work, Bill Ward states:
"When I first saw the canvas ...just looking at the picture, I was just blown away. I was like 'what the heck was that?' The first thing I thought of was grief. That picture just fit it so well. If one had to pick up all the words and situations and things that have been going on from January 2012 to July 2013, that picture sums it up.
It's really become personal to me. I couldn't think of anything more suitable than grief. Just a large portion of my well-being lately has been like that. I think its a great picture... all the deep crevices in the man's face... the eyes... the nose is very prominent. And it also leaves a little bit for your own imagination, which is beautiful.
You can do some thinking for yourself. It's a high impact picture and definitley suits the climate of the last 18 months."
