Imagery of this painting is directly taken from former Soviet Estonia's women's magazine 'Soviet Woman'. This magazine created and propagated femininity according to communist ideology of work and workers. Women were depicted as hard working comrades of Soviet society. The ideology of this magazine created the idea of the 'norm' and 'normality'. Everybody whom these rules of 'norm' and 'normality' did not apply to, where considered lazy and not valuable to the society. Soviet society did not celebrate individuality, but men an women who had certain abilities and suited well to created and propagated idea of 'normality'.
Painting/collage is made from acrylic and household paint skins. These skins are drawn into, grated, knitted with, accordance to the required needs of imagery or my own fascination with paint.
