Kindergarten (2022)


There are images that capture ‘perfectly’ the awfulness of conflict, and this photograph of a shelled Ukrainian kindergarden achieves just that. The juxtaposition of the colourful toys with the white blasted bricks needs no further explanation. For my part, I chose to recreate the scene using Plasticine, a medium seeking to mirror the instinctive simplicity of Maria Prymachenko’s paintings, whose exuberant folk art was our prompt for this week’s Kick-About No. 51.
