Sad Times This graphite pencil drawing ‘Slava Ukraini – 15-02-23’ is a depiction of The Motherland Monument in Kyiv, Ukraine. Since the Russo-Ukrainian War became full-blown last year a lot of things happened. In the first half of 2023. I made a couple of works with that theme but they were more gentle than this one. Back then, before the 24th of February, I secretly hoped Putin wouldn’t be pushing through his invasion eventually. Little did we know of gross atrocities committed and the monstruous scale of warfare. It seems to take on proportions absurdically medieval. In the meantime, I was doing my regular female forms, watching front news on youtube on a daily basis. I feel almost guilty, munching my diner away behind a screen, watching daily topics. Maybe we all do, here in the free West. How about you? Let’s Get Political Time to make a stand. I handled political and social-cultural theme in the past. Such can be seen in ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page (2020)
