The painting "Ice Drift" shows the organic union of concrete subjects from life and deeply eternal themes that are always characteristic for the artist’s work. Viktor Ivanov references acute social problems both visually and compositionally, such as the chosen path of the country as a whole and of individuals during the initial years of perestroika.
