Artist Nomination Document

 

 

Helen Lieros Born in Zimbabwe, Helen's words describing her painting, "Mother Africa and The Apocalypse" give us an opportunity to share the soul of an artist. "Mother Africa, within the earth and beneath the red sky, watches quietly and patiently, the coming of the storm: the Riders of the Apocalypse and disease, pestilence, famine and war and all of which are present day afflictions in Africa. The battle is about to be joined, but Mother Africa is good, beneficent, long suffering and will sustain. Hope is not yet lost."
