Additional Information

This figurative painting was sort of inspired from thinking around the Harvey Weinstein coverage and the #Me Too movement. The title (the Latin bit) was cribbed from Rossetti’s painting of the same title and translates ‘behold the handmaid of the Lord’, sounds like something from a Margaret Atwood novel ! Well honestly you wouldn’t feel that comfortable about saying ‘No’ to the wrathful, vengeful, “Abraham go sacrifice your son”; “do what I say or I’ll turn you into a pillar of salt”, etc., etc., God of the time. Rossetti may have been thinking in similar terms as one review of his work postulates “This painting is unusual in that the artist shows Mary in a state of fear”. I’m not intending to belittle or deride the Me Too movement but more an agnostic’s thoughts about relative acceptances given the so called annunciation is part of a belief system followed by a significant percentage of the worlds population and supported and promoted by a lot of powerful and influential people. Framed dimensions (62 x 82).
