Black Madonnas project 2021

Black madonna.
Black Madonna.
Lino cut, hand coloured monoprint. Exhibited in patterns for Peace 2019 @REMuseum.

Seeing this beautiful statue in Sorocaba, Brazil reminded me of all the Black Madonnas I have seen: Montserrat, Catalonia, Dublin, the one in La Plata cathedral in Argentina and one in Sao Sebastiao do Paraiso in Minas Ferais State in Brazil. This face is such a sweet one and the blue colour is one of my favourites.
