Meiosis digitalis

Painting of eye and flowers behind golden cell screen 2017. Acrylic and metallic paint on canvas. 75cm x 60cm x 2cm

Meiosis digitalis is a painting about the relationship between science, nature and the feminine. Digitalis is a plant that was traditionally used by healers and that is still used to treat heart problems and swollen hands and ankles.
Some of these healers, normally women, were burned as witches and now the pharmaceutical corporations make millions.
The painting belongs to the series Animated Natures, where I mix stereotypes around women with ecology.
