Conception depicts the moment of our creation; a celebration of our natural manifestation into this world.
I had planned the composition beforehand, but I wasn’t sure of the supporting abstraction. I knew that I wanted to incorporate my beloved Vescia Pisces – but I wasn’t sure where.
After the initial drawing, I created a primordial soup of deep red tones and started to push the paint around. I focused on pain, blood, and tissues of menstruation. How to best convey my detached understanding of the visceral biology paired with the supernatural phenomena of the transference of life?
In the painting, the gesture that our beautiful creator embodies is at once the cosmic danse and a practical nurturing.
