About Baby

In Baby, which comprises twelve painted panels presented in an uninterrupted band, the poem at the bottom of each image uses a nursery rhyme style to tell the story of a woman who drops and loses her baby in a canyon due to a sudden river swell. A lamentation on the difficulties of parenthood complements a detached and light-hearted description of the event. The author and, following her, the reader are divided subject to violent, but contradictory emotions: the desire to abandon one’s child, the despair upon tragically losing him, and the detachment that enables one to engage in playful irony in facing the dramatic situation.
