Our Lady in Knight's Hat, 2016

35 x 25 cm

Watercolour, oil, canvas

This work is part of the series “NICU”, being dedicated to one of the most important Christian themes – Our Lady’s suffering as well as on the nature of suffering in general. Since the moment of conception Virgin Mary knew about Her Child’s inevitable suffering in life and early death, and she went towards this tragic event during 33 years. The depth of suffering in case of a child’s severe illness and death is immeasurable. The author’s personal experience and observations spending many months together with her own child in hospital reflected in artistic works, in which the author tries to show specific NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) atmosphere and mood, as well as to achieve deeper insight into the nature of suffering.
