Signature Details: Original Artwork: WALKING ON SNOW WASN’T BUILT IN A DAY 8Х11, 2019
This image is one of the large bodywork made from found slides. I have about sixty thousand old slides in my collection. They are from different times and various countries. Images used in this particular cut-out ( all by hand, no photoshop) are from an American family from the late 60s combined together with the ones from the kindergarten of the Soviet Embassy in NYC made by a Russian diplomat in the early 70s. American teenagers playing with snowballs and kids of high-rank Soviet officials — would their paths cross?
The title "Walking on Snow Wasn't Built in a Day" comes from a famous Jack Kerouac quote, except that I used “snow” instead of “water” that was in the original quote. Collective and individual memories, with their gaps, thresholds, are like a frozen pond, you don’t remember how everything happened, but the “water, fluid” of the memories is there — beneath, above, inside you, layers by layers built not in one day. As Marcel Proust wrote “Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” It is a Puzzle.
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
