MADDONA AND CHILD, 2011
Marble, various dimensions
This is a series of marble sculptures I carved in the form of breastfeeding cushions. Created in various kinds of marble, the hard forms were posed in [un]accommodating arrangements that are coldly figurative.
This project is a statement on motherhood. The works contrast the principle symbol, through the millennia, of worshipped and sanctified motherhood: Madonna and her infant, in every possible way.
