Each piece in the Mother and Child series is a celebration of relational life in my home during my sons’ little years. My intent is to depict the loveliness of my wife during her happy and chaotic first chapter of mothering, the boundless energy of our three boys, and the wonder of the mother-child connection. My aesthetic decisions are informed by the rapid pace of early parenthood. In keeping with this pace, large sections of each piece were initially rendered in a gesture-drawing style. Likewise, the various contours surrounding each abstracted figure were drawn to convey the movement and ever-changing nature of life with infants and toddlers. In celebrating my family with these marks, my aim is to remain present and reflective in a season when it is easy to prioritize the urgent and become distracted from what is important.
