Women of the Revolution: Paintings by Kathrin Longhurst

Published Mar 20, 2015

Heavily influenced by communist propaganda and socialist realism painting, these artworks by Kathrin Longhurst play with contrasts by juxtaposing provocative models and soviet propaganda posters.

“The slightly obscured Russian text in the background of many of the works, translated as provocative words such as ‘sassy’, ‘naughty’, ‘snob’ and ‘bitch’ is not only reminiscent of the format for magazine covers but also references the Russian Constructivists who used graphic text alongside abstracted forms and shapes, often imbued with politically charged meaning.”
