Just as photographs are snapshots of memories, so are art pieces can portray symbolic events, movements or feelings and thoughts. The article touches base on the symbolism of the socioeconomic factors of Russia and the relationship to democracy. Conspiracy theory shows that propaganda being portrayed on the news, the painting itself includes news reporters with blank stares on their face. This may be symbolic of fear and suspicion that is evoked by such media hype due to the Kremlin crisis factor. Russia’s crisis (both financial and political) resulted in panic which was illustrated in the bold colored painting of people running in a chaotic state. Political forces which have resulted in “managed democracy” result in a mismatched, confused identity painting which correlates to the uncertainty of the economics of society.
