Unlike conventional war memorials, Ominbus is a neutral statement in which I have tried to avoid patriotic sentiment.  Thematic interrelationships of objects are predominant in both Omnibus and the RoW series. These objects may appear different, even unrelated, but their combination creates a new form. My intended principle themes are tragedy, reconciliation and the futility of war. Paul Wager ‘The Jackdaw’ November/December 2013
