Additional Information

Self And Birth is the Death of Us by Caterina Leone – Silverpoint (.99 silver, 23k gold) and acrylic spray paint on wood panel, 50cm diameter.

Taking its name from a line of poetry by Anne Carson, this work is a personal confrontation with my own fertility, or possible lack thereof, and what it means to consider motherhood in today’s environmental and political climate.

My revival of silverpoint, which is a largely forgotten, pre-graphite way of drawing with precious metals such as silver and gold, combined with contemporary mediums like spray paint, depicts my struggle to reconcile my reverence for tradition with the necessity of its revolution.
