The Corn Hall in Diss is hosting Drawing Soldier: Douglas Farthing’s Visual War Diaries.
These works by Douglas Farthing MBE – drawn over a period of 30 years serving as a Soldier in the British Army – describe in line form, feelings and experiences which are hard to articulate in any other medium. The graphic use of ink and the size and format of his work allows the viewer to feel what a soldier feels when in conflict with the enemy. The prints – mono and etchings – are a series. Together with a manuscript they record Farthing’s service with our armed forces.
The show runs until Saturday 1st December.
