This work, Speak not, Reply not, Do not Speak a Word, 2014, one of a tryptich, is made to comfort people who lost their dearest ones. The inspiration to make this triptych not only came from the blooming sunflowers on the 17th of July 2014. I was motivated to soften the horror of the MH17 disaster and the fate of volunteers looking for remnants of bodies between the sunflowers in East-Ukraine. The sunflower is the national symbol of Ukraine.
To remember those who fell down on sunflowers the 17th of July 2014, Flight MH17
It takes time to give a work the right title.
Time to read poems, to dream on my cloudswing, to dance, to work in the garden, to listen ...
What do I hear? Is it my inner voice or a voice from above?
In this work you can see among others: a big angelica root and pollen the yellow powders of the big sunflower. It also contains yellow stars of antidepressant plants: St. John's wort ( Hypericum perforatum) and angelica root. A strange rosa bud growing in the middle of our magnolia tree. I hope they will brighten up your mood.
