Inspirational Vision and Technique

24 Dec

Gary sent me the link to this video, which had me in tears before the end.  It’s a “must see.”

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine’s version of “America’s Got Talent.” She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and “sand painting” skills to interpret Germany’s invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.

We who have lived in relative peace, prosperity and safety all our lives can’t possibly begin to understand how such tragic vision and beauty like this survives to emerge, but that it does is a testament to the existence of a force greater than ourselves.
