Composite plate, mixed media.



Even after the darkest night comes the dawn. This truth is as undeniable as the complete harmony of black and white colors, which the artist uses to create his art object. This laconic yet eloquent work reminds us that everyone’s contribution is important. Behind every armor plate, behind every soldier, behind every Ukrainian stands Ukraine. We are all one, everyone is a part of a whole independent Ukraine, a free democratic world. This essence is unbreakable, like a harmonious union of black and white colors.
