Alexander Milov’s “Love” was the first Ukrainian piece to receive a festival grant in 30 years. “It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature,”
Milnov explains. “Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children chart to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.”
Finally, at night fall – healing. A joining of two.
The artist’s words speak to me. Trapped inside all of us, is our inner light, our inner child so vulnerable and innocent – reaching for love, that adults, in all our wisdom can build a wire fence around to protect ourselves, but in truth prevents us from what our inner self desires most – Love. God given . . . ours to receive. Love ♥
