  • 'CONCEPTION' - by Tara de la Garza - New York USA
  • 60 ft scroll of Japanese rice paper, painted in a meditative state with a recurring symbol of fertility. This symbol has been distilled from various cultural/historical symbols of fertility such as the Venus of Willendorf, the circle (of life) and the Celtic spiral. The sculptural form is itself a spiral and will be sectioned and distributed as lucky talisman to people who wish to conceive at the conclusion of the show.

  • ...I wanted to create a symbol that embodied the essence of fertility. I began to paint this symbol with Sumi-e ink on Japanese rice paper. Then I fell pregnant..."
