Mother Musca Pt. 2

PhD Research Project (by Studio)

A series of eight paintings explore the developing embryonic heart to underpin a re-imagining of Neo-natal linking between mother and child. The imagined symbolic effects of a shared/universal entanglement become manifest, with each painting directing the next via a breast form. Through imagined embodied states of being, the forms offer a dispassionate shift, back and forth in a form of rhythmic symbiosis suggesting a visual ‘heartbeat’.
