These Black Madonnas are inspired by photographs taken in la Plata cathedral in Argentina and also in Sorocaba in Brazil, where these Madonnas are venerated. They are part of a long tradition of Madonna with dark skin, the subject of many interesting academic discussions and I find their beauty a constant reminder of our Planet Earth. For me, these works embody the Mother Nature figure prevalent is no many cultures worldwide. I have seen many of these Madonnas – in Dublin, Prague and Montserrat in Barcelona.
