Seeking Mary

2019

Seeking Mary was my final submission for my Fda.  In it I was trying to understand, and connect with Mary the Mother of Jesus .  The interest in this subject was triggered by visiting many churches, particularly abroad, where there are numerous statues and images of a beatified Mary. Through this work I sought to understand, and connect with Mary the Mother of Jesus.  

 

  

The 12 pictures  (collated into one image here) explore Mary as a woman of her time; more than the mother of Jesus.  They show Mary performing everyday tasks as well as depicting some of the scenes from the Bible.

Individual stitched images 8cm x 9cm.

Wooden panel mounts 24cm x 25cm
