“Peace breeds love, love bleeds peace and the world longs to bleed”
These are the words written by Irish troubadour Foy Vance in “Hope, Peace and Love” (used with kind permission…thanks always Foy) and I keep coming back to them time and time again. What they say totally relates to this suite of six new works , each made in a day, one each week for the first six weeks of the invasion of Ukraine in 2022.
“Though these are difficult works, they are not without hope”* There is one work for each of the first six weeks of war in Ukraine and the final work, “и будет мир - and there shall be peace” holds fast to that hope.
вторжение - invasion
всегда готов - always prepared
период перехода - time of transition
зажигательный - incendiary
i буде мир - and there shall be peace
