MEMENTO MORI

75 x 60cm, Oil on Linen, 2013

'MEMENTO MORI' - REMEMBER THE DEAD
In a time when infant mortality was commonplace, photos were often taken of the deceased to honour their memory. Here the woman blinded by her grief delivers all to ashes and escapes ultimately and knowingly toward her own demise.
