oil on masonite, 2020

According to Russian folklore, Gamayun took the shape of a bird with a woman's head and lives on an island in the East. Considered as the prophetic messenger, Gamayun served the pagan gods before the introduction of Christianity. She symbolizes wisdom about all that transpires in the realms of gods and men. Born with the world, she is a keeper of secrets whose words and enchanting song are understood by select few who can heed her knowledge. 
 
The painting "Gamayun" is an interpretation of the myth set against the backdrop of contemporary world, marrying the legend with the harsh reality of present day. What prophesies can the bird impart on us?
