Meditative notebook of war and funeral flowers
Funeral wreaths and mourning bouquets of two flowers are depicted alternately in a primitive style.
The canvas is a notebook in a cell on 24 sheets, which was my life jacket from the first days of the war. Each page is one word or phrase associated with the war in Ukraine. The meditative process of writing the same thing made me calm down, turn painful news into history, accept it.
Then each sheet was torn into 4 parts, two of which were turned over so that the other side of the sheet was visible. The black background forms a cross between the particles of the sheet.
I also want to say that when creating I tried to avoid my own emotions. Only words that came from the news or from relatives. Only flowers to honor the memory of the dead.
