About this artwork

Artist Jo Galang explains that this warm, painterly image of poppies is in fact a reference to Remembrance Day. The symbolism of the poppy started with a poem written by a World War I brigade surgeon, says Jo. The battle wreaked havoc across northern France and Flanders. In 1915, red poppies began peeking through the land. John McCrae, a brigade surgeon, spotted a cluster of poppies. He wrote a poem, In Flanders Field, where he channeled the voice of the fallen soldiers. Jo reminds us of the subtle and important messages that exist throughout art.
