Another day at work that turned out to be longer than I had expected. How can the time spent there be doubled and the progress still look minimal? Someone is messing with me, right? Am I on Candid Camera?
Coming home and checking my email reminded me that I am thankful for art. How you define it, what speaks to you, what response art evokes is all personal and varies among us. Art may inspire, comfort, agitate or delight.
I enjoy a completed work of art. I enjoy creating my own art. I also enjoy the process of creation, an art in its own right.
This clip shows Kseniya Simonova, a Ukrainian artist who recently won the "Ukraine's Got Talent" competition. She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret the invasion and occupation of her country from 1941-1945.
I am amazed at what she was able to portray with sand and her talented hands. I hope you find this interesting.
