  • Wars Come and Go and the Carousel is Always There to Remind us of the Good Times, 2016
  • I created the carousel after spending the summer working with refugees who had escaped devastating wars in their home countries. I was inspired by how they were rebuilding their lives and approaching each day with positivity, despite all that had happened to them. The carousel symbolizes hope in that the bad comes and goes, but the carousel remains. It is there to remind us of better times, the dream locations of childhood. This is a really joyous work, the first of its kind, and I believe now, more than ever, we need to believe in and work together towards a better tomorrow. OLEK
