Motherhood: Self Preservation or Sacrificial Offering
Oil Paint on Composite Board
Recommended Display: Framing (Custom)
Inspired by the painting characteristics of Vienna Secessionist artist Gustave Klimt. Prominent paint strokes add rich texture and movement to the image. The mother figure in the center holds what could be the form of a child up to her cheek. This was an exploration of the contradictory idea of motherhood from the viewpoint of someonewho is not a physical mother: the human's instinct of self-preservation versus a parents desire to sacrifice everything for their offspring.
