In this piece I was hoping to explore the feelings I have about my experiences with the Ukrainian revolution. This event has brought both, freedom and a huge breach between friends, relatives and families. Although all share one culture and history that the Ukrainian national shirt represents, some have radically different views that ruptured the country and created conflicts and costed many their own lives. I tried to play with the composition and colour scheme of the painting to represent it. The picture is warm coloured, implying a space of what is supposed to be home, warm, cozy, welcoming. But the composition is cold. Figure isn't the centre of attention, faces are unimportant, for they represent not a single person, but a portion of the nation. They are positioned facing away from each other, only a cold shadow connecting them. Their bodies aren't full. Cut of at the waist they represent being just pawns on someone's political chess board. Their postures are sunken, exhausted. All they want is freedom, peace, unification … same goals under different definitions.
