Unless one has had the experience of caring for a preemie, you'will never know the things preemie parents have to go thru for their babies. Protect addresses the natural instinct to protect, to keep the baby safe from harms way, for the health hazards and dangers to a preemie are very real. It also gives you a glimpse of how others might look at it as being paranoid or overly protective.
Protect is a piece of mixed media art measuring 5 x 7 inches and mounted on a 6.5 x 8.5 inch black frame. Protection comes in a dramatic form here, where the seedling in the bottle is cradled safely in barbwire. The background effect is one of an overgrown forest, dense and hidden, a place of isolation and in that, safety in paranoia proportions for the growing seedling.
