About Mary and her three daughters

In previous art projects I have met many women from very different parts of the world. Often they spoke about the importance of making women's lives and spirituality more visible. Meanwhile, I also experienced how the Madonna got more importance in the Scandinavian Lutheran churches. These two parts, the issue of women spirituality and Mary's importance in our own time, I have joined in this art project that I call "visible - invisible, for Mary and her three daughters".

In this project I have made three series of art pieces. One with inspiration from Icons, one with paintings on very old wooden material and the third with modern "donnas" in embroidery. All paintings have golden backgrounds, as the golden color in old Christian art stands for God's presence. So in my paintings Mary's contours glows of gold; the divine presence in humans.
