Love this


"Fabric of Motherhood" is a unique collage in a body of work concentrating on baby carrying and the presence of fabrics in a mother's life. The print is named and signed on the back and underneath it on the mat.

I made an experimental print of a women carrying her infant in a sling. This one here is printed from a piece of cardboard. (If you had a look around you saw a drypoint from the same sketch, but this is a different print.)

I then cut out the print and collaged it onto a separately printed background. This background has more to it than apparent and gives something to discover on a second sight: Underlying a fabric pattern, printed with a handcut lino block, is a shading of a house indicating a city silhouette and a clouded sky that was printed in a puzzle print technique, with 4 pieces.

The image has the size of 29.5cm x 20.5cm and is mounted onto mountboard (it is signed on the back and on the mountboard). The completed assembly fits into a A3 (14x11 inches) frame.

It is sold without the frame, but mounted to the mountboard. If you need it mounted to a different size, let me know.

For international shipping options, please contact me.


Fabrics seem to be ubiquitous in a mother's life: all that laundry, the different textures of muslin sheets, rompers, bibs, washcloths and sheets. And of cause gorgeous shawls and blankets of all kinds.
This is a dedication to a mother's life and a great gift for the mother of a child that's dear to you, whether it is your grandchild or your wife.
