Dark Underbelly of a Durica Painting or Emancipate! Tell Your Mother You Love Her and Mean It!, 2000
Oil, wood on canvas
60 x 48 in.
LEFT: Despite 'dark matter' or the emptiness of the cosmos, one of the most profound forms of 'light' is the love exchanged between mother and child. This is a stepping stone in gaining mental stability as a human.
RIGHT: "He/She Knows It" which refers to exchange of Love between me and Creation/God/Universe. It is printed in reverse so that the observer must use the mirror, a device of self reflection, to see it.
