Contemporary acrylic painting
Canvas, backing board on a handmade sturdy wooden frame
The series is based on the cycle of life; life, death and birth.
The figure is limbless as it shows the body as an incubator,
the limbs are unnecessary for the body to produce life.
The painting shows a pregnant female figure on a dark background.
The dark background could represent the darkness that death brings or
how life begins in the dark until the light appears at birth
The egg represents birth, new life while the skull represents
the process of ageing as death creeps in.
