Pravda! (Something admirable - Something savage), 2018
My new series of work is deeply inspired by the aftermath of the Russian Revolution. My fascination with this specific era is based on extensive research and fragmented family history. Therefore confronted with the lack of specific or personal information and experience, the fabrication of an alternative history and the fusion of metaphorical levels, create a new dimension for this series. It is an attempt to explore the concept of Russian Messianism, to displace and juxtapose elements of research, anecdotes and forgotten faces in multilayered compositions of panel paintings and embroidery. I am establishing an intense relationship with material, process and subject matter in order to create an irregular storyline, a collection of tactile objects that embody my imagination.
