3. Mike Quirke - Refugees (£300-500)

Mixed media on paper framed 40 x 30 (16 x 12)

This picture of the refugees was one of a number of studies

produced in preparation for a commission on Stella Maris, Our

Lady Star of the Sea. The examples I’ve looked at on this theme

regularly include figures in peril in a boat upon the open sea. The

plight of the refugees seemed to me an obvious example in our

time to invoke the all-encompassing protection of Our Lady.
