Karl Kristjan Nagel
Memorial to the unknown revolution"
oil, hardboard 2015
This painting is about "living monuments" that our present western culture tries to ignore or categorise under any well-known theory. The reality still always meets those, sometimes totally artificial frames and dogmas. History remembers winners and their revolutions – red, green or orange colours, there is no difference of times and places. These are the stories and media sphere that we know, so I’m trying to find and show the other half who is mostly marginalised, left out from open discourse or physically destroyed by some other manipulative way.
