Good Mother Bad Mother

1989

Diptych.

Good Mother 204 x 143 cm

Bad Mother 204 x 154.5 cm

Oil stick on Arches paper.

Collection of the Artist.

Two paintings on paper of the mother archetype. Liliane’s encounter with this archetype proved to be emotional and extremely disturbing.

Working with archetypes can be dangerous because one is inevitably entering into unchartered areas of one’s own psyche with little preparation or external support.
