Our Lady of the Angels-Gone and the "Terrible Mother" 3

about two weeks ago I began to feel a strong wish of working in a piece about abortion. I got to make a nouveau-style illustration some time ago, but nothing close to this work I started to develop early last week and decided to call Our Lady of the Angels-Gone. writing this post was very difficult, since many questions came to my mind, questions that lead to another to another to another… the ones who know me know that I am totally pro life, and it saddens me to know […]


about "The Waterman" 2

I don’t really consider what I’ve been doing as a pure form of Abstractionism, but rather […]
