“Mother and Child”
“Mother and Child”
Acrylic on red cedar
28” x 12” x 1”

The Humpback whale is a reflection by which we view our primordial selves; we are found wanting for these avatars distanced from terrestrial vices and quarrel, as they are of a nation apart from ego and one with nature. A people before landfall.

This sculpture of a Mother and Child is imagined after the denizens UFO and Mars, two Humpback whales encountered seasonally in the Gulf of Maine.
