Artist's description:

This piece is Inspired by the miracle that is life and the light that is formed within the darkness.

As I grow my first child inside of me I am awe stuck by the magical experience of creation and the development of life going on inside me as I go about my life. Within this triptych I wanted to try and capture the wondrous spark of life that occurs when the sperm meets the egg and the journey that arrises from this moment.

It has been discovered over recent years that a bright flash of light occurs when the sperm enters the egg, leading to a surge of calcium which triggers the egg to release zinc. As the zinc shoots out, it binds to small molecules which emit a fluorescence light. MAGIC.
