Artwork Description

Winner of the Artists Choice award 2017 Just art competition, Gauge Gallery NSW
Inspired by my 3rd and final child this piece is a celebration of those special moments in time spent nursing and bonding with my beautiful babies. For so many of my fellow mothers though, breastfeeding has seen them publicly shamed on many occasions, and despite the law protecting their baby's right to be fed, I hear time and time again awful stories of my fellow mothers being shamed into denying their babies food.
I have created a sculpture that is intended to provoke a nurturing response, beautifying the bonding and nourishment that is created when a mother breastfeeds her child. My intention is to take away the disgust of those offended by public breastfeeding and to evoke the awareness of this tender, cherished and nourishing act.
