Gestation is a series created after receiving eight vending machine babies in plastic balls from a friend. People who are familiar with my fine art projects know that I often utilize a variety of dolls in my work. The fascination with the inanimate doll is that we all have experiences as children playing with dolls in some manner. Often using our own childhood experiences or societal observations to role play a host of scenario's bringing life to these inanimate beings. Gestation is a series that taps into the emotions and connection to the creation of life. It evokes emotions of fear, delight, and surprise, as well as, reflections of ones past, present and future. The images balance between a sense of calm and anxiety while representing a slice of life in ones family album. Gestation is about beginnings and the challenges of life from conception to death, how ever long that span may be.
