“In my childhood, I used to create images on the ground with lint from used thread or hair or even plant fibers pulled from a leaf as I sat observing the women -and my mother- on the land. In September of 2020, I lost my mother in the midst of the pandemic. I had to mother my daughter amidst my grief...I created many works related to the theme of mother and child but many were very heavy and painful. In Mothering, I, I share a few of [these] images.”Eva Rocha2020
