Print 1 Historical Document, Exiles Tin Mug, top row, left — The image, grew from Wyllie's quest to find a historical document from the communist era, whilst working in Russia.
The print was informed by my friends Marsha and Sergei's discovery of a prisoner's mug they found on a desolate island in Karelia. This bleak island, bordering with Finland, had been used by Stalin as camp for dissidents. The mug is a tin can with a scrap of wire around it forming a handle.
Marsha said "This is your historical document."
