The New Mother

 

This astounding piece of art celebrates the most beautiful phase of a woman’s life, the motherhood. A mother carrying her baby on her back can be seen in the picture. Stepping into this stage of her life, she experiences mixed feelings of joy and jitter. Joy of having her baby in her hands and jitter because she is anxious about fulfilling her responsibilities towards the child. She nurtures her child but at the same time she is looking back to her previous life. Background is filled with pouring and symbols of butterflies which shows her bond with her past. This artwork is painted with transparency technique using bright acrylics like orange and green on canvas. The figurative is inspired by Pattachitra which is highlighted using black bold lines.
