Bridgette McNab Witching Hour

'Witching Hour' by Bridgette McNab, 2022.

Working directly from personal experiences of motherhood, pregnancy, birth and postpartum depression, these autobiographical paintings focus on the physicality and interdependence of a mother / child relationship.

Rejecting overly-romanticised views of motherhood, this collection of works sees Bridgette depart from figurativism into minimal abstraction.The recurring three pronged flower motif a metaphor for the artist's daughter.

These paintings function as emotional landscapes and metaphorical portraits that narrate my experience of motherhood. Themes emerging are isolation ,control, anxiety and joy - the transformative and traumatic experience of becoming a parent.
