Artwork > Childfree Madonnas

Hail Jane, full of grace. Honoured are you among women. Honourable is the fruitlessness of your womb. For you so loved the world, that you abstained from procreation, in order to preserve resources for all the Earth’s children.

Borrowing from Italian Renaissance paintings, ‘Childfree Madonnas’ uses historical visuals of virtue and generosity to elevate modern women. Specifically, those women who purposely choose to live child free in order to preserve resources, reduce emissions and work towards a more sustainable tomorrow.
