2016, photo, fabric thread and string on abaca paper, 11 x 9 1/2 inches.
This was a doll dress I made when I was a little girl. Here are my children being my children. At first I named this Giving Birth is Not This Easy, because birth is never easy and actually, I had three cesarians despite my honest efforts for natural births. Later, reflecting on this artwork and my life as it is now, I realize that no matter how much I think that I may have given birth to autonomous beings, they are still very much under my skirts.
