Renate Rienmueller, silver gelatin (fibre based) photographic print, 27 cm x 21.5 cm (framed size 39.5 cm x 32.5 cm)

“In Indigenous culture, we talk about earth mother and sky father...we connect to our mother through earth (ground) and our father through sky. In Indigenous paintings or carvings, horizontal lines represent earth mother and the parallel lines represent sky father. In this image I hold the ‘father’ shield, however, you can see the cross over between earth mother and sky father as the lines meet within this multiple exposure.  To me, this crossover represents not only the equal need to protect both our earth mother and sky father, but also the importance in finding the balance between the masucline and feminine within ourselves and what that may mean to us both physically and spiritually.”
