Metal, gas burner, sand.
Let’s pay attention to the important things! A target burned by fire seems to hypnotize and draws all attention to itself. The colors of the blue cloudless sky overhead and the scorched earth coexisting nearby – this is the dramatic reality of Ukraine today.
But the protagonist of this object is a laconic crater from a shot. The artist seems to indicate to us that there are no little things, everything matters. What may seem like a small harm spreads like a circle on water, forming a potential tragedy for humanity. Attention is the most valuable currency of modern society. Let’s pay attention to save lives.
