Red Robin Theotokos
Red Robin Theotokos. This painting shows a robin gazing down at a nestling baby bird, each surmounted by a gold leaf halo. Theotokos refers to the Virgin and Child that derived from Christian religious canon. I used this familiar imagery to depict a mother robin and her chick. This piece features gold leaf and a red patterned background. The wood plein air frame is metallic gold crackled patina.
This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
