Mother In Arms
Spacious Skies 2009


Eleven paintings , six of which incorporate expressions of love, concern and familiar warnings spoken by mothers to their children or left in notes: phrases that re-contexualized to a theatre of war take on a new and ominous meaning. Words that in childhood are intended to protect become frighteningly superfluous in war. The five blue paintings that accompany the "word" paintings abstract these issues into pure form.
