Watercolor and graphite on handmade paper | 2020
A continuation of her ongoing Sentinel Mothers series, these watercolor and graphite studies depict various fecund bodies amid an equally fertile landscape. Garber gives a nod to the history of the female form both in visual art and mythology, emphasizing its strength and power — particularly in its most primal state of childbearing.
