Ready to Hang
During the slow moments I quietly sneak out into the open space, leaving my body in charge of the usual routine. My body was trained to behave according to the existing environment, i.e. if it is left at a meeting it nods and makes appropriate comments; if it is in a store, it purchases the required items; when it drives it follows the traffic rules, and when it has free time it hangs out with the other abandoned bodies. All that while the real me is flying somewhere with the wind and birds, enjoying speed and fresh air, singing with my friends – a crowd of free spirits.

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.
