Three Spoons

24 x 36 inches, Acrylic, paper, charcoal, conte crayon, metal and fabric on canvas, 2018

This painting, Three Spoons, explores the forced migration and devastating effects of the 1986 Chernobyl Disaster.

The painting reads “I scrubbed the house. I bleached the stove. You need to leave some salt, a little plate and three spoons. As many spoons as there are souls in the house. All so we could come back.” as said by one of the displaced survivors.
