Flown With the Wind

Art and words by Vladimir Kush

The powerful breath of wind brings us freedom
from the heavy burden of the past, we experience
a dream-like sensation of flying to the new horizons.
But a swarm of people sailing into uncertainty
against the crimson sky background is also
a bright metaphor of the dramatic nature of our life.
You guess right - the name of the painting is a paraphrase
of the great novel "Gone with the Wind" in which
not only people are gone forever
but the entire civilization of the Old South.
But we nonetheless believe that the diaspora of courageous
aeronauts will fall on the rich soil and germinate
giving rise to the new civilizations.
