My fascination is with origins... Origins of cultures, of words, of species... And I've always wanted to do something representing the origin of individual lives; Where everything begins for each of us. And where, most of the time, it all ends before it even begins for many more, potential, lives.

The grainy texture was deliberate. I wanted it to look like some sort of future 3D MRI scan. And the creation process became part of the art, in that, it was an extremely arduous, difficult, at one point painful (due to a mistake, I had to start it all again) task, which caused me to miss the deadline for a challenge... Representing childbirth and overdue delivery.

Love the image, the way the symmetry is broken by the rolling ball and the texture. Great short essay on origins, too. It made me think.

And synchronous maybe that the piece itself missed its due date? It’s amazingly layered and mesmerizing, as I find all your work. I’m glad you kept going and posted it in it’s perfect time.

Yes exactly, Ruth! I meant that in the last part of the description ;) ... Thank you for your words... It is almost strange for me to have people liking all my work. I'm very happy to have found this community <3 And yes, each piece is completed in its own time, indeed...

Nailed the color scheme and somehow abstract anatomy? Prior to reading the description I felt I knew the piece, nice work Jody! A sway of irony too on a personal note, today is my birthday and i was nearly 2 months overdue, bless mothers!

Thank you! And very happy belated birthday! I'm happy to say that I will be sending this to you as a gift, because even though Xelda was first, I sent her the previous one. (And woah! 11 months pregnant must have been intense!)

It refers me to a womb and births are always painful but they generate life. A strange creation, endearing, blood but representing the origin of any creation. An interesting proposal that impacts me visually and emotionally. Unlike the previous 2, and as your statement, it is the beginning of the whole. Excellent what you have managed to communicate.

"...that impacts me visually and emotionally." .. This means a lot to me because one critique of using fractals/maths to create art the way I do is that it doesn't connect to people on a human, emotional level. <3 Thank you for your words.
