Painting Kamp7-Ambarawa by Yvonne Vander Kooi

Kamp7-Ambarawa

This painting started off the series and explores my father's family past through stories, pictures & research.
The painting layers interpretations of old photo images & text from camp life Kamp 7 in Japanese occupied Indonesia during WW2 - Indonesia was a Dutch colony at the time. My father was a young boy at the time of the Japanese invasion and he as well as his siblings were interned in various POW camps in Indonesia.
