Marlene Dumas

Marlene Dumas... Die Baba (1985, Oil on Canvas on Linen). "...Bathed in sickly blue-yellow light, Marlene Dumas's baby is almost repellent. Instead of an instant love affair, Dumas paints an alien encounter, the unnerving presence of an ‘other', the realisation of an individual with a will and determination of his own. Marlene Dumas confronts the reality of motherhood, with all its natural and terrifying implications." From Marlene Dumas at the The Saatchi Gallery. Also... Selected Works by Marlene Dumas at Zwirner and Wirth in New York, NY.
