Exodus (Shore of Life Vests), 2017
Amanda Santos 
80 x 80 cm 
Acrylic on Canvas
In Exodus (Shore of Life Vests), Santos draws inspiration from footages of refugees in their life jackets, arriving at the shores of Lesbos on flimsy rubber dinghies. The life vest as the subject is significant, as these inflatables are the only things left which refugees can cling to, as they make their exodus across the Mediterranean Sea. However, even as millennials live in a time of much unrest and uncertainty, Santos believes that every crisis is an opportunity – and with these worldwide crises, they may give opportunities for renewed hope and compassion that transcend borders.
