Objects in Soviet Films is a series of miniature watercolour studies and drawings based on selected sections of film stills from mainstream Soviet-era films of the 1960s – 1980s. While this project’s subject matter comes from a cultural experience specific to post-communist diaspora, my motivations are ontological, addressing universal concepts of materialism, consumerism, and the weight of anthropocentric, ideologically-driven production of culture.

This project is supported by the City of Windsor’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Fund.
