Motherhood

motherhood

Motherhood is a small exhibition with 9 original artworks in the collection. I have revisited my muses. The statues. This time I went back to the mothers. I have studied their postures, their gestures, even their hair. Some were made from imagination others were inspired by a specific sculpture. 

In 2014 I started going to our National Museum here in Copenhagen a lot. There were free entrance once a week and I had no money because of studying and paying rent. 

In the National Museum they have a great painting by Matisse of a woman in the foreground standing tall and naked and I remember studying his line work. The lines he used were very strong. He had chosen what was necessary and nothing more. Since that day I have tried to incorporate this drawing method into my own practice. I started going to a croquis class every Sunday to practice my line work and I went to museums to draw from sculptures. 

In 2021 I made the first exhibition using this drawing technique which also had mothers and children as a theme. For me, there is something special about the bond between a mother and her child. A closeness and affection I never experienced before I became a mother. It suits the very minimalist drawing technique to have several people portrayed. This gives the work a greater complexity and thereby gives the viewer a story to relate to. All the works are made on canvas. The material is untreated cotton, which adds a tactility to the work itself. All the works are framed with handmade oak frames which compliment the untreated cotton very nicely. 

In this exhibition I have also chosen to make two lithographs. One shows a kneeling mother kissing her child and the other shows a mother with her newborn baby in her arms and her second child leaning on her shoulder. It was important to me that you could see the strokes of the brush in the work, so that you as a viewer could sense originality. An off-white paper has been carefully selected for the lithographs, which will highlight the work if they are framed with a white background. All lithographs are signed and numbered by hand.
