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 soft forms were posed in closed and unaccommodating arrangements, that are subtly figurative.

 

The work is a statement on my motherhood. It represents an acutely private issue, in contrast to the icon of Madonna and her child – a major symbol in art history through the millennia that symbolizes a worshipped and sanctified motherhood.
