About work

We lost Eden as a result of Adam and Eve’s first sin, and we are still losing remnants of it now, eventually destroying the world. However, mankind is capable of recreating it. We can transform the property into a flower garden. Fruits are the epitome of everything. The entire universe is contained within each of these “natural talents.” The tree, and later an entire garden, may develop from a single cherry stone. The cherry is a symbol of the Ukrainian garden, and hence of the Ukrainian soul. The sculpture “Equilibrium” addresses the lifetime issues of mutual understanding and respect. Two dynamic things are linked, share “roots,” and balance in space.
