Mother Love

Portrait of my daughter

A mother’s love can be painful.

The transfigured romantic projections of a good and loving mother and the contemplation of the real person do not create a homogeneous picture. The different projections do not add up to a homogeneous picture but instead create a lot of cracks and fractures.but rather cracks and breaks:  Sewing the parts together with a golden thread is both a material operation and a way of depicting the ambiguity of motherly love.
