REMEMBERING MY HOMELAND
For this painting series, I chose two primer materials.
Coal powder, which refers to the dominant coal mining industry in Donbas.
Blood, referring to the violent events of the civil war in Donbas and the national crisis.
Those paintings were created after my return from the Donbas region of Ukraine, my homeland, which I visited again in 2018. This experiment with supports allowed me to reflect my emotional state at that time. art
