Description
In this portrait of her mother, the artist offers an intimate and unblinking view of the person who brought her into this world. Printed at a large scale (around 40 x 50 inches), the image clearly show the grey hair, lined skin, and experienced hands of age. But the scale of the print also emphasizes the subject’s solidity and serenity, offering an opportunity to appreciate her beauty and strength.
