Melancholia


“Melancholia” (2016) constructs a fantastical natural world that is absolutely feminine, exalting mother nature and motherhood while a woman’s body in the throes of giving birth blends into a tropical cascade, with nipples bursting out of a mouth, along with shells and roses, evoking a delirious hallucinatory state comparable only to that precise moment of the birthing of a child and all its wonder/pain/labor.
