Made in Europe - Sandra Newton

Sandra Newton, United Kingdom - One Day

Part of a body of work looking back to the sixties. Inspired by Solzhenitsyn's account of life in one of Stalin's labour camps, 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich',  which was published in a momentary thaw of censorship and with the approval of Krushchev, in 1962. The piece incorporates one of Zhukov's reflections on freedom and the commentary of George Lukacs which defined the social and political significance of this work ... questions which have piercing relevance to us in Europe today.

Monoprint, collagraphy, printing, spraying with various acrylic based mediums. Raw edge applique. Free machine stitched.

Evolon, Abaca paper, lens tissue, tissue paper, lutradur.

The black lettering at the base is 'One day' in cyrillic.
