Life Delivered - Art


Life Delivered is a monochromatic, minimalist piece that invokes the miraculous nature of life. The image portrayed in this painting is unusual, yet vaguely familiar. The central structure is lined with two steps that appear to connect. This image presents a picture of a young, developing life receiving sustaining substances through the connecting stems. Life is nurtured and prepared for its delivery into the world, its needs provided for during this crucial time.
The regenerative qualities of life have made development and birth a popular subject in art from many different periods. Like death, birth is a universal feature of life. All life must begin and end, and these two most significant milestones have bee captured by artists working in many media and styles. The emergence of life is a profound occurrence, and Life Delivered is part of a long tradition of artistic portrayal of birth.
