Carnation (2023)

As written in Volkskrant Magazine: ‘I can’t remember the last time I did something for my mother on Mother’s Day. With these pictures, I’m hopefully making up for the past forty years. I started looking online for images and then noticed that many Mother’s Day crafts by small children are of hands – cut out, pasted or stamped – in combination with flowers. I took this as a starting point for this – adult version – for my own mother. I’ve been a mother for ten years now and yet I don’t think I could ever do it as well as she did.’
