Artists Statment:
I called this trilogy of images "Incarnate", because for me they are all about the impaired body.  When I saw the famous Fuseli picture at the Tate Britain Gothic Nightmares exhibition, I immediately thought of the medieval legend of the changeling.  It seemed to me that we could imagine this woman as newly pregnant.  Her nightmare is her anxiety about the tests she would be offered.  Should she have a test or not? Should she have a termination or not?
