Thinking about the war in Ukraine. I use only 2 colors of Ukraine's flag yellow & blue and paint the Sunflower of Ukraine's national flower. I dedicate all my heart to them and wish them peace and end the war sooner.

kyungsoo lee’s Forever Ukraine is a testament to the versatility of painting. Lee makes a political statement through a color palette and a name. Perhaps, if I were more in-tuned with the Ukrainian people's struggle against imperialist aggression, I would have been unable to see blue and yellow without thinking of their flag. However, I am only a bystander and regrettably needed the title and description to connect the blues and yellows to the current plight of the Ukrainian people. However, once my art-poisoned mind understood this association, the painting took on new depths. Lee does not celebrate the heroinism of Ukrainian partisans through depictions of war and violence but hope and beauty. Flowers are the promise of peace, the promise of renewal and rebirth. "They can cut down a thousand roses, but they can never stop the coming of the spring!”
