Alisa Volkova (Rus): Stories about them. Homeless portraits

Alisa Volkova (Rus): Stories about them. Homeless portraits exhibition at Hirvitalo 15.6.-7.7.2019. Paintings, photos, installation.

“When I first time thought up an idea to portray homeless peoples faces, it seemed to be difficult to do it technically: how will I ask them to sit for a portrait? Before too long I found the charity foundation, that has The Charity Bus – for food, drugs and clothes delivery for homeless people. And in this contest, it seemed to be appropriate to take photos. I remember these peoples faces very well and then in my atelier I draw them by heart. Initially, I thought up an idea to draw them with the purpose to show how their hard life had left an impact on their faces, but afterward, Ive changed the concept – when Id learned them better and listened to their life stories, Ive got more interested in human and spiritual aspects of their personalities than in their appearance.”
