Factory Harvest

Graphite and colored pencil

This is my second piece that is part of ICAN’s Cesarean Voices traveling art exhibit. My first was born by cesarean. With the rising cesarean rate, it has indeed become a factory harvest of babies as women are routinely put under the knife and have their babies cut out of them. The stress on both mom and baby is intense and may lead to further complications. I wanted to show the graphic reality of a cesarean birth… baby is pulled out, placing stress on the neck and shoulders. Blood runs. Mom turns into merely a vessel.
