SONNETS FROM THE CRIMEA (2014)
HALF OF THE DEER LIVE ON THE MOUNTAIN, HALF OF THE DEER LIVE ON THE PLAIN WHEN THEY MEET IN THE FOOTHILLS, IT IS ONLY TO TALK, THEY ARE DEER AFTER ALL, NOT HUMANS. (2007)
CROWD: MOSTLY IN CHARCOAL, ON PAPER (2005)
Charcoal and Pastel on Paper
This is a work in constant transformation. It maps actual events occurring through time. It carries three titles (to date), each serves as an interlude for reflection. The first title Crowd: Mostly In Charcoal, On Paper (2005) marks the beginning stages of the work (2005—6), depicted by Marianne Boruch in her poem with the same title (2005). The second title Half of the deer live on the mountain, half of the deer live on the plain when they meet in the foothills, it is only to talk, they are deer after all, not humans. (2007) is borrowed from a poem by Betsy Andrews (2007) pointing to the relationship of crowds to animals. The third title Crimea Sonnets 2014 (2014), marks the seizing of the Crimean Peninsula by the Russian Federation (2014).
As time passes the work will evolve with its next stopover and pick up a new title along the way.
