Soviet childhood

Gallery "Rosenfeld" in Tel Aviv invites you to a personal exhibition of Zoya Cherkasskaya "Soviet childhood".

The exhibition presents large-scale paintings and drawings of the artist, representing a visual portrait of the social and everyday life of the Soviet Union from the 70-80s.

Zoya Cherkasskaya was born in Ukraine, in Kiev. In 1991, after the fall of the Iron Curtain and the collapse of the Soviet Union, she immigrated to Israel, where she still lives and works. Her paintings combine nostalgia and satire, humor and irony, idyllic propaganda pictures of that time and the protest influence of Western culture, the despondency and hopelessness of life and eccentric perception of the beginning changes.

The exposition of the exhibition is an emotionally and stylistically accurate and recognizable portrait of Soviet realities in which the artist spent her childhood.

Prepared by materials site gallery "Rosenfeld".
