BORIS MIKHAILOV- RED

This piece of work I have seen several times before at the Tate Modern however when visiting it this time I was at a point in my own practice where I wanted to start showing a connection in the work.

Red explores diverse scenes and subjects based in Ukraine about political and military parades and also gives snapshots of families and friends showing emotional connections towards one another all of this aside none of the pictures has a significant event connected to them the reoccurring theme within all of the images is the colour RED!! From reading the description I became apparent that the red represented the Soviet. In Russia red is seen as beauty, blood and the flag, however, it is also about communism and quite possibly this is what the work is about.

To have a reoccurring factor in your work is one that will begin to take place in mine. It shows connection and uniformity in any work that is created and could quite possibly be shown by using:

  • colour
  • subject
  • location
  • content
