Abstract

The works presented here are portraits of my Mother meditating for motherhood between religious faith and will power, the creation of which, became a personal means of coping with her death. Catholic rosaries and knitted baby booties are depicted as I explore feminine identity within the context of fertility and the social views that condition it. Material explorations include, rusted steel, body fluid, and animal tissue.
