A Different Kind of Artwork

I don’t know about you but I love to actually see how other artists work. Watching as they lose themselves in their work is absolutely fascinating and intriguing. I frankly can’t remember how I happened upon this video but it had me enthralled the whole way through.

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who’s main tool is one we quilters actually use in our work…a lightbox. She “writes” stories with sand as her medium, and quite effectively too.

In this video Kseniya gives a moving portrayal of Germany’s invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII. It’s amazing to watch as she weaves the story by pouring, moving and drawing in the sand.

“If we take it that art’s purpose is to illuminate the world in a new way, provoke a reaction, somehow alter the consciousness of the viewer then her work is a huge success.” writes journalist James Donaghy (www.guardian,co.uk).

Oh and another thing, she just happened to have won Ukraine’s version of “America’s Got Talent.”But don’t let that stop you from recognizing her talent.

See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
