Ukraine (Print)



1 / 10 limited edition

Artist Bran Symondson’s contribution to the undertaking is a piece which pays homage to the Ukrainian flag whilst utilising his iconic exotic Lapis hued Morpho and flaxen Phoebis butterflies. The Piece is consistent with his previous embellished AK47 and then given a further layer of significance. Symondson guts the magazine to create a frame for the blown glass bullets which are then loaded with often precious and sometimes graphic fillings which express the narrative of the pieces. In this case, the bullets contain Origami white Doves, Rose Quartz and Citrine crystals. Yellow Sunflower Petals, being the national flower of the Ukraine and Blood, Oil and Earth represent the age-old dispute over land. The foremost significance of this is the origin of the weapon – Russia. The dichotomy is startling, a weapon that has such an intrinsic role in the Russian Invasion is deftly engulfed by wings of delicate butterflies. It’s almost as disarming as the role art plays in the face of tragedy.
