In this virtual lecture, Lesia Sochor, the artist behind Pysanka: Symbol of Renewal, will explore the egg’s concept as the embodiment of the life principle associated with mythical and religious ceremonies from the earliest pagan times. In addition to a historical overview of pysanka, Lesia will examine the deep-rooted symbolism and discuss how the pysanka, an echo of the past, was the catalyst for a decade long exploration of paintings acknowledging her roots and contemporary self.
