Ready to Hang
Stopping for a moment to reflex who I am, where I am and what I am doing. The head is full of voices, thoughts and images, it’s hard to decide which one to follow. Maybe the one where I am an animal that was placed in the cage to participate in the rat race for an amusement of the masters. It is impossible to break free, since our race was domesticated a while ago, and only a few will be able to survive in the wild. I’m definitely not one of them, I’m a middle-aged vegetarian that denounces violence toward animals, i.e. potential food source. Maybe I just need to fly away in my mind imagining that I’m a summer wind that travels around local landscapes and white clouds. Yes, this might work for 3-4 min, then I need to return, change the mind set and continue my obedient existence.
This painting comes with a frame
Anita Zotkina was born in Odessa, USSR in 1971. She was introduced to art by her parents who were art-lovers, and who provided art supplies and encouraged her to paint at a very young age. She became a full time artist when she was 18. Her paintings were sold at the Odessa City Garden as well as various galleries. At the age of 27 she immigrated to New England, US and where she continued her artistic career. Anita doesn’t focus on one subject or on one medium. Things come in waves for her, and her art expresses stages of her inner world. She never knows what she will believe tomorrow and what will be her next venture. She gets inspired by everything: people, wine, Europe, music, radio-shows, books and etc. Recently the YouTube channel became her greatest inspiration. That is where she learned about Peter Joseph and Zeitgeist movement, Dr. Greer and extraterrestrial visitors, Guy McPherson and abrupt climate change, and many other fascinating things. She wants the viewers of her art to concentrate on their thoughts and feelings, to think about dinosaurs (i.e. they were once a very important part of the Earth and now they are gone), be in peace and love the universe.
