Emergence/Surgimiento by Tanya Torres
Oil on Canvas, 60" x 40", 2015.
This is the first finished piece of my new series, something I have been wanting to work on for several years now. It is a large piece inspired by the idea that humans are literally a part of the earth.

The earth is our mother, we inherit and share her every vibration, proportion and material. Our heart beats at the same rate as her heart. We are like the salted water of the sea. We emerge from her as a child emerges from her mother.

As for me, the image is close to my heart: emerging anew after a year of change, little deaths of old stories taking their last breaths, and a new face cleansed in the living waters of the present. Every change is hard. Every rebirth is beautiful.
