ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Walter L. Sturghill Jr.

Look behind me and see what’s going on. Look behind me and find out how it feels to be far away from home. Look behind me and see what others take for granted. Here in America, we seldom think about the comfort we receive from loved ones, and the little wealth that we’re blessed with, and the life that we live. Look behind me and see the troubled man walking on the beach. I wonder if I would have talked to him just a little bit more, could he have been reached.

This was the first time a lot of us were this far away from home, even I felt a little anxiety taking toll. Look behind me and see the helping hands of Fijians from villages nearby. Look behind me because no matter where you live on earth, you still need money to survive, and be grateful for what you have. Look behind me at the coconut trees, I have come to appreciate life from my experience overseas.
