I chose the "Sleeping Ariadne" statue as the basis of the picture's plot. Without her, Theseus never would have escaped the Labyrinth. The condition for the Theseus' rescue was his marriage to Ariadne. But at the behest of the Gods, on the way to Athens, Theseus left her sleeping alone. In late antiquity, she began to be portrayed as “sleeping”, “mythically”, “dead”.
In the artwork, the statue sleeps peacefully, enjoying the sounds of music. On her face we see peace and tranquility, her lips are curved in a slight smile. She hopes for a better future, and doesn't understand what's going on.
I wanted to portray our society, thanks to this image. Russia's society is based on politically immature people, and not only politically. We as teenagers aren't completely aware of ourselves and our strength, of our ability to influence our country's life. We're childish, and we're beginning to realize that only now.
The pink flowers in the painting are chosen as a symbol of naivety: mine and of my surroundings.
The heroine in this artwork acts like nothing is happening. She doesn't see and isn't able to understand that everything's on fire, and she's already doomed. But she keeps thinking that everything will be fine, although she has long needed to wake up!
