    Excellent ! Recalls a more innocent/hopeful/confused time. Now we are just as confused, sigh. Putin’s finger is pointing in a different direction, but Russia’s old masters would approve.

  2. Gorgeous piece! The woman’s dress, though a bit too “active” for Malevich’s paintings reminded me of them which is perfect. One of my favorites of yours so far. Good work (and I really love the fluidity of the arm. makes a good contrast with what I imagine as hard edged regime officer. I’m rambling on and on but yeah)

      analog, thank you 🙂 kind of wanted this one to undercut / satirise Russia’s current ‘gay is bad / macho is good’ stance, by feminising their most ‘macho’ dictator. ‘Stalin loves 80s knitwear’ was a working title hehe!

      and thanks, not heard of Malevich before – AMAZING stuff!!

      thanks prior! the arm / hand is from a painting of marie antoinette, pointing west, towards france from russia.. not sure what relevance this has! hehe 🙂
