Artwork Description

Oil Paint on wood, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

The pomegranate fruit has many meanings: death, rebirth, life, prosperity, ambition, the supernatural.

In most religions and cultures, it is the symbol of fertility.

In the society we live in, despite many arising female empowerment movements, fertility is largely considered a necessary component of being a woman.
Making the decision to not have children, postponing it or struggling to make it happen, will with no doubt make women feel like they are inadequate, incomplete.

In this series of paintings, I explore my feelings, conflicting thoughts and emotions related to fertility, the reproduction treatments I went through and how society handles this topic.

I use the pomegranate in its totality of meaning and possibilities, not just limited to fertility.

Medium

oil on multiple small wooden boards - 8 wooden boards of 10cm diameter
