Background, history, commissioner of the work

This piece was funded and conceived by the artist and is part of an ongoing project exploring themes of hierarchies and power.

Thematic/contextual information

My work explores the situation of the individual in a capitalist consumerist, increasingly authoritarian, environment. The baby form symbolizes the inner emotional spirit and human nature in all its vulnerability and frailty, in the context of the "civilized, modern" outer world.
