"There are no tyrannies that would not try to limit art, because they can see the power of art. Art can tell the world things that cannot be shared otherwise. It is art that conveys feelings."

 - Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine

“This painting is a literal rendering of a dream I had in Rome in 1955. The discussion that day was about the last war and the fear of a new one. I dreamt a kind of strip cartoon.
I saw the cemetery with endless crosses of the slain and a number 1,000,000…. with endless zeros. Two small malicious men were making skittle-balls of the zeros and bowling all the crosses down. Then there is room for new ones (which is written on the picture in Greek) and the dance of the death can start afresh.”

Jan Cox, 1975
