This is a painting of a soldier whose identity is pieced together by moments in his life, and impressions he has had. He is conflicted between the cross and star at the top of his helmet, looking aged and angry in one frame that’s bound with another, while seeming normal in the other frame. This painting speaks to loss of time and sacrifices made by the common men who served in the red army.
