The Ideal Mother
This project is an exploration of the mother identity, and how mothers have been idealised through society; feeling pressured to keep up with such a status. With much influence from my own experience as a mother, and art history of the Madonna and child; I aim to question how the representation of the mother has been falsely and negatively represented through the media, and how the reality of this is not functional or ideal. In contrast to the Madonna, the mother is disconnected from her child, to which the child becomes a fashion accessory.
