Ucraina is a project born to denounce the Russian invasion of 24 February 2022, to the detriment of Ukrainian civilians.
It is the creation of a large canvas, 3×2 meters, depicting a parent holding his dead child in his arms. The colors are those of the Ukrainian flag. Taking a cue from a detail of Picasso’s Guernica and a symbolic photo of the war in Syria, with this canvas I wanted to express my repudiation for the entire war.
We brought this painting to the anti-war demonstrations, as a symbol and a banner for peace.
Ucraina 2022 is a digital sculpture belonging to the “The.Golden.Art” collection. It is inspired by an old painting of mine, and represents a pile of cushions that recall the colors of Ukraine. Turning around, however, you notice that the pile of pillows falls, leaving a pillow in an eternal fall. The waiting and the eternity of a moment only always the key theme of my research.
The work recalls the cover with sand bags for protection, of the monument of the founder of the city Duke de Richelieu, in central Odessa, Ukraine March 9, 2022
