Anti-WAR 2022

From 28-Feb-2022 to 31-Mar-2022 Exhibizone Online Exhibition

My Page P.8

Exhibizone proudly presents the 20th exhibition artist call from the Diversia series, focusing on the destructive aspects of regional and global wars, conflicts, and attacks, and the consequences and aftermath. In the UN calendar, January 27 marks the international day of commemoration in memory of the victims of the holocaust. In a world still suffering from genocide and war, it is essential for future generations to learn about the holocaust and never forget what happened in Europe in the 1930s, and 1940, so we all may work toward preventing genocide. On February 24, 2022, a few days after honoring holocaust victims in WW II, Russia invaded Ukraine and started the first war after WWII. The suffering of WWII victims is still hurting, yet Russia is determined to add to the conflicts and suffering in the world. Anti-War 2022 showcases works of art similar to images that we see these days in our news feeds. We invite you to visit Anti-War Exhibition at and share your opinion and comments. Thoughts and Prayers to Ukraine.

Title: Infinity War is Over

Year: 2020

Media: Lacquer, Silk Organza Ribbon, Toy Soldier, Sand

Dimension: 9”x9”x2.4” 23x23x6(cm)

After I created the work titled Infinity War, I made this next work titled Infinity War is Over. I

shaped it like a Christmas wreath as I made this work during the Christmas season with my wish for wars to be over infinitely. I selected red lacquer to paint the toy soldiers to create the bloody image of battlefields and sprinkled red sand as a finishing touch to depict the dusty environment. The soldiers have lost their original forms which shows how hard and long they were forced to fight until they finished the foolish acts.

This work expresses that war is never ending. Even the countless tragic consequences of war never stops the decision makers from having the idea that war can solve their issues. Kids enjoy fighting with toy guns, tanks, and soldiers.The familiarity to these toys might affect them unconsciously to prefer battles.
