Rain by Nazar Bilyk
Rain is a 190cm tall sculpture made of bronze and glass. What’s interesting about the sculpture is that the man’s skin appears dry and chapped as one large droplet of “water” seems to balance precariously on his head and blue rivulets of paint run down his body. The sculpture can be seen as an expression of relief encompassed in the moment this man is relieved of his thirst or as a torturous moment in which the man is unable to immediately attain that which has come so close.
A full page illustration is for the last New Yorker fiction “Mayfly” by Kevin Canty.
Big thanks to AD Jordan Awan who suggested that we could create an edge to edge butterfly piece focusing on the first paragraph of the story: “Driving across the Utah desert on I‐70, James hit a butterfly with his car. Then another. Then a shower of them, hitting the windshield like hail, wings trapped in the wipers, orange and black. The noise of them, muted but steady, woke Molly from her trance, and she looked out the windshield, at broken wings and yellow smears.”
You can read the process post on my drawger.
