In his work Donetsk Subway Generator Roman Minin traditionally speaks about the challenging fate of Donetsk region. A scheme of non-existent Donetsk subway the author has come up with is the foundation the artist puts his constructed images on, all of them produced in his characteristic style. The complex composition is united by a symbolic miner’s figure, placed right in the center and represented by multi-armed Shiva. Dedicated to current events in the country, the work symbolically refers to visible and invisible event horizons, the boundaries between the earthly and the otherworldly which become so fragile during the times of war.
