I Wish Thee Well. Pastel on canvas. 19th December 2017
First drawing in the series ‘ Everyday Matriarchal Heroines’. A series by Anna Boros for 2018.
This particular work, as is evident, a self portrait of the artist.
It is about the complex nature of the anxiety that can be caused through a child that has grown up and is now leaving home. Many mothers do actually feel the angst of saying goodbye to their beautiful grown up ‘babies’. In this particular case, the artist experienced deeper complex issues having lost 2 daughters previously. One to cot death, and the other without explanation.
