Uranus and his mother – middle panel (2022)

Tempera and acrylic colors on canvas, 117 × 97 cm

Mother holds her son, Uranus. Vibrant colors and morbid scenes express the contradictions inherent in her nature – the essence of the challenging role of motherhood. This painting depicts the Greek goddess Gaia, who personifies Earth, portrayed as alienated. The artwork explores the inner conflict of a modern woman who has lost touch with her primal maternal role in a chaotic, violent, and bewildering world.
