But the eyes and emotional expression – the artist’s reflection in the mirror, as she explained it herself. Later in one of the artist’s interviews she said “What are these paintings for? Were they needed by someone? All of these spells – “Forward”, “Avenge”, “Bay”, “For the Motherland!” ever got into someone’s heart? I doubt it.” (Do not talk! Nina Vatolina)
