Madonna&Child, a series of collages, 2014

In the Madonna&Child series I combine pictures from second hand art history books with plain images from how-to-take-care-of-your-indoor-plants kind of books. I cut away, replace, juxtapose, intertwine and overlap parts of these sacred and so well known images of Maria and her baby Jesus with images of flowers, leaves, branches and fruit, thus playing with concepts of fertility and immaculate conception, mother earth and the divine, life and death, love and loss.
