My marquetry work, “Seminal peace”, has been selected to be included in ”The Peace Project 2011”, an exhibit and fund-raising event.

All net proceeds from sales of The Peace Project artwork and related products will be used in Sierra Leone to provide healthcare – providing 10,000 pairs of crutches and mobility devices to everyone in need throughout this entire post-conflict country.

Participating galleries include Gallery 9, Los Angeles (Oktober 22), EXPO Arts Center, Long Beach (November 4), and Gallery TBD, New York (November), and the Showcase Gallery, Santa Ana (Januar 7).

It is necessary to acknowledge the particular one woman.

A Los Angeles woman, Culver City art gallery owner Lisa Schultz, left behind a successful career in advertising to tackle big problems thousands of miles away.

My piece “Seminal peace” was selected as part of the 150 visions of Peace (Peace Project Grid) that will travel with The Peace Project Exhibit.

My Vision of Peace

Marquetry work “Seminal peace” Peace is trying to express the archetypal child. Also, the archetypal sociality and natural oneness with another being, starting from the mother.
However, the relationship to peace is possible that most vividly expressed sentences Fyodor M. Dostoevsky in the novel “The Brothers Karamazov”: ”May the sacred ideals are not worth the tears of a child”
“While there is still time, I hasten to protect myself, and so I renounce the higher harmony altogether. It’s not worth the tears of that one tortured child who beat itself on the breast with its little fist and prayed in its stinking outhouse, with its unexpiated tears to ‘dear, kind God’! It’s not worth it, because those tears are unatoned for. They must be atoned for, or there can be no harmony… I don’t want harmony. From love for humanity I don’t want it. I would rather be left with the unavenged suffering. I would rather remain with my unavenged suffering and unsatisfied indignation, even if I were wrong. Besides, too high a price is asked for harmony; it’s beyond our means to pay so much to enter on it. And so I hasten to give back my entrance ticket, and if I am an honest man I am bound to give it back as soon as possible. And that I am doing. It’s not God that I don’t accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket.”
