Red is the colour of blood
Red is the colour of paint
Red is the colour of violence
Red is the colour of danger
Red is the colour of shame
Red is the colour of jealousy
Red is the colour of grudges
Red is the colour of blame
“The thread of life woven into the web of life”.
“Nurture” is a further development of my ideas regarding fertility; the ties of mother and fetus, the meaning of nurture, feeding and ripeness. The lining of the womb, layers of ink soaked muslin created a soft nurturing environment for the fetus. Deep red, burnt sienna and crimson used separately or in combination added depth to the colour of the cloth. Nestled amongst the folds lies an unborn baby attached by its umbilical cord.
