The series of portraits observes a perception of post-maternity condition, new parenting, exhaustion, and adds sarcasm about the role of the mother. A figure with stretched breasts, a feeling of emptiness, but at the same time in stockings that show an attempt to keep sexuality and live up to illusory standards of a patriarchal society. I was much inspired by body metamorphosis of Maria Lassnig, as well as by the sculpture by Louise Bourgeois.
