Full caption: Edith Dormandy, 'Self Portrait as a Baby (Triptych)', 2018, watercolour on paper, 50x19cm
This work is available framed or unframed. It is float mounted on off-white card and framed with a narrow wooden moulding, stained a dark teal-slate colour. It is glazed with UV protective Art Glass, and has string across the back for immediate hanging.
Edith says: "This is a painting of me as a baby. I painted several from the same photo processing envelope which contained photos of my mother pregnant, the empty Moses basket, me in the transparent hospital cot, my parents holding me, and me in the Moses basket. It also contained, bizarrely, photos of Rachel Whiteread's House, which my parents evidently visited around that time. It seemed a remarkably appropriate artwork to go with all these images of vessels (cot, basket, womb) both full and empty of baby."
