Description

The Moon-After,
Virginia Tech Memorial

(2007) 40"x30" oil on canvas

It is the first time the full moon is observed after the massacre of Virginia Tech. For many, the moon will never look the same again.

This is a quest to extract the feelings for the souls that will be missed in the lives of many, and for the souls among us that were touched in different ways.

A trans-mix of materialistic and spiritual elements is represented by colorless buildings, lilies to convey an overwhelming feeling of surprise, shock, grieve and hope. Thirty-two different types of lilies in white and orange emerge from the gray-shaded mix of figures, symbolizing the spirits of the 32 victims.

With the absence of the victims from sight, they become like images, or like seasonal plants, that are soon gone.

Lilies were chosen to represent the diversity of the victims, as lilies grow all over the world in different types.

The work on this memorial started with the first full moon after the massacre, and was concluded early June 2007.
