ART REVIEW of Ukraine Series
Filippucci’s searing “Ukraine Flower Series: The Power of Defiance,” now at Five Points Gallery, is the artist’s response to the war in Ukraine.
“I can think of virtually no artist who has devoted the bulk of her career to a single subject. Picasso now and then jousted with his alter ego, the Minotaur.
