Cast glass sculpture by Colin Reid
Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk created this 6-foot tall sculpture of bronze and glass called “Rain”. A single raindrop balances on the figure’s face representing several different facets - the often delicate balance between man and nature; the man looks up to sky asking the eternal ‘why’, the difficulty we face with unanswered questions.
Bilyk says, ”The raindrop is a symbol of the dialogue which connects a man with a whole diversity of life forms. The figure has a loose and porous structure and relates to dry land, which absorbs water. In this work I play with scale, making a raindrop large enough to compare a man with an insect, considering that man is a part of nature. Moreover, this work concerns the question of interaction and difficulties in coexistence of man with environment.
The sculpture is on view right now at the Peysazhna Alley (Landscape Alley) at the Kiev Fashion Park.
