This Mamay was started as soon as I returned home after the national assembly (“viche”) on Dec. 1, 2013 (the beginning of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity). It is then, when I made a wish on this work: when I finish it, the end will come with victory. I painted and repainted for many days, and the opposite happened. The painting only came together on the day of the victory.
