Machtig Prachtig / Mightily Marvelous

by

Born in the Netherlands, Tamara Stoffers is an artist who has long been fascinated with Russia and the Soviet Union. As the artist puts it: “[The USSR’s] typical visual language in architecture and art feels nostalgic to some and is still relevant to others. I compose my images from old books concerning the USSR, cutting and pasting to create new situations…By digging through archives without a preconceived plan, I subconsciously find visual connections.” You can find more of her work here.
