About Artwork

                                            ‘The act of birth is the first experience of anxiety,

                                  and thus the source and prototype of the affect of anxiety.’ 

                                                                                                                                      Sigmund Freud.

Every life is delivered into this world through pain – the very first initiation into the violence of existence. As a womb ruptures, like the nautilus shell, to ooze out new life - a struggle begins for subsistence and exuberance that follows like a shadow until the very last breath.
