The blue bird in my chest

Ganna Surgan

Mykolaiv (Ucraina), 2023, digitale.

"Simplicity, purity, delight, and lightness. Emptiness. The fleeting nature of every moment of life. That was the aim of the illustration.”

“Nabokov has a line ...and you will be like the first morning in unknown land. My illustration wants to show exactly this feeling, the weightless lightness you feel when you discover a new things, new life, new land. Gravity of the past doesn't effect on you, your soul trembles with delight like a bird. A sunny day is at the beginning, it is still as empty pure and light as the morning sky in faraway land."
