The Motorist, The Provider, The Lookout, The Slacker and The Soothsayer
Acrylic on canvas
170 x 100 cm

A series of self portraits inspired by the characters in soviet painter Victor Popkov’s monumental work ‘Builders of Bratsk’ and by the experience of migration to the West of an CEE woman who would be classified as low-skilled and not ready to shake off the attitude to get ahead in her new environment. It’s a friend of a friend.
