Sperm and Egg
This body of work was the first series I made after I went back into my studio about 9 months after I had my second child, Kosmo. I was actually working at night while he slept and having to run from my studio to my house when he awoke to breastfeed him back to sleep. The Sperm and Egg series shows us, the viewer, what it would look like when the sperm penetrates the cage-like structure of the egg. A freshwater pearl is then metaphorically created.
