Artist's statement about the work:
This image is adapted from a large acrylic brushwork on wood panel painting that I worked on at various times from 2013 until 2019, progressing slowly line by line, pattern by pattern. 
When I began the painting it was sort of a symbolist meditation on trauma, and the feeling of being overwhelmed by the misery and pain of this world. A phrase from Erich Fromm stayed with me as I worked on it—"One cannot be deeply responsive to the world without being saddened very often". I worked on the painting periodically over the course of time in between other paintings and murals, while our family saw illnesses, weddings, deaths, and, around the time of this painting's completion, a birth. The feeling behind the image had transformed into something a little bit more hopeful, and eventually Fromm's line was replaced in my mind by another, from John Berger— "And so to find an exit from the darkness". The initial exploration here of the fetal position as a protective response to trauma then came to also be about healing, and of the potential for new beginnings and brighter futures. I put a tremendous amount of care, love, and time towards trying to make this image beautiful, and I hope that might help transmit some sense of rebirth and renewal.
