Collage 58

Lola Baltzell
from page 123-124 of original text
collage and acrylic on paper
made on 4-2-10

If we were trying to capture the narrative of the story in visual terms, this would have been a great one to use for the death scene of Count Bezukhov. Somewhere along the line I found a stack of postcards with Russian icons. I love the strong red with the religious iconography.

Here's a passage I like a lot. It is describing how a soldier feels under enemy fire. "... this feeling gives a particular brilliance and joyful sharpness of impression to everything that happens in those moments." This is also a good description of meditation -- clear and radiant. -- Lola
