Mother & Child

(Apologies for any inconvenience, this section is currently under development, being added to...)

These pictures are made from life and responding to whatever happens at the time.

Unlike historical normatives, e.g. Madonna and child pictures which are staged and formal, I want to try and show impromptu and casual, informal moments of the mother and child, moreover to reveal real intimacy and tenderness, suggested through gentle touch and closeness.

I love the little Titian painting of the mother and child in The National Gallery, not just because anatomically its a stretch of the imagination but because that purposeful distortion of the bodies reinforces its real focus for me, which is about the intimate tenderness and connection between the mother and her baby.
