Last Day

First place on the 4th Blank Space 2017 Fairy Tales Competition was awarded to Mykhailo Ponomarenko, Ukrainian trained architect who created monumental landscapes with classical painting techniques for his entry “Last Day.”

"Landscapes have always inspired me to put something weird, unreal and out of human scale into them. Something not feasible and not practical that contrasts with the natural surroundings, but also exists at the same scale. These satirical interventions lead to new ideas and feelings about nature – they make the viewer more aware about the environment and our harmful impact on it. We are flat surface creatures. Sometimes I feel that we crave it so much that the planet is going to be turned into pavement so cars can go anywhere, and our industries could continue expanding. The “Saturn Rings” in my proposal represent these flat surface desires but in a more poetic, optimistic, and friendly manner" .  Mykhailo Ponomarenko
