Happy Poetry Friday
I’ve been researching contemporary Ukrainian Artists in efforts to share one for International Women’s Month, and discovered Anna Scherbyna. I wrote an ekphrastic poem from one of her powerful art pieces called, Disposition of the Power Gaze Using the Examples of Wartime Landscape, 2020. As I didn’t know if I could share her art you can find it by following the link below, and also capture glimpses of her working on it and talking about it in the video. Her art installation drawing is from 2020, and she visited a number of eastern Ukrainian towns to gather images for creating her art. War was going on then also.
Here’s another link to find her art installation at the Pinchuk Art Centre, Kyiv, scroll down towards the bottom of the art review to see her artwork.
Here’s also a link to her website

I’d also like to share with you a review of artists, poets, and writers that just came out on the Humans and Nature Blog, and that I’m included in. I’m sharing a series of Milkweed paintings that I’ve been working on. Scroll down towards the bottom of the review to find my art and writing.
