This painting is the last of the Northern Series.
Its main theme is universal motherhood and how girls are expected to become child bearers in many cultures around the world.
Each one of us is a product of ancestral memories of foremothers who took care of our first steps and years so to become the next generation...and welcome the next one. Such is the cycle of life and death...and rebirth...?
This painting uses mixed media (vintage pictures in dye transfer) and transparency techniques so produce the memory effect.
Ink, dye transfer, crackle paste, mortar, gesso, fibers
