To make clear the how the shocking military invasion of Ukraine by Russian questions our understanding of morality and ethics of power and war. It asks us all to consider how… crushing freedom by oppression, denying the flourishing of people by killing, preventing the building a future by destroying a country, choosing to cause harm over the power to heal, can ever be an option.
Using Adobe Illustrator I chose to create a simple and immediately understandable conceptual image about opposites. The flower has always been a symbol of the peace movement and the sunflower – Ukraine's national flower is a symbol for growth, life and potential – succeeds despite destructive force of war. The very simple text encapsulates much more complex issues.
