Baba wants me to wear this dress is a 14" x 10" oil painting by Peter Shostak created on canvas. Shostak draws upon the rich tapestry of cultural heritage, depicting a traditional Ukrainian dress suspended against a stark, textured wall. With its intricate embroidered patterns and vibrant colours, the dress stands out as a symbol of identity and tradition. Shostak's work often reflects a deep reverence for his Ukrainian-Canadian roots; this painting is no exception. It represents not just a garment but a narrative of familial and cultural preservation and the delicate balance between the old and new ways. The solitary dress, with its shadows cast upon the wall, speaks of history, memory, and the quiet dignity of the continuation of heritage.
