From the artist:
During my experience of motherhood, for the first time in a young age, I have been haunted by insecure feelings, thoroughly fed by my own parents, for many years. It took me a long time to realise that I have the ability indeed to be a good mother, and that my history and experiences did not allow me to be a mother all the time for my daughter. Now I know that for the best part of my 20s, 30s, and 40s my motherhood was an on/off action from my part. Although I am still struggling as a mother, during the last years my on times increased noticeably (both in terms of how often and for how long), and I enjoy this warm, unique experience with my daughter more and more and in more depth as time passes by. I represented this relationship between me and my daughter as a bright sun warming and feeding a unique, beautiful flower. The center of the flower carries the same colour as the sun, and small dots of this same colour depict the flow of motherhood from one generation to the next.
