Wonderful work! It transmit hard strength, appealing to powerful primal forces, even in the most abstract ones. In "birth death", if I can make an observation, there is, for one point a view, the simultaneous contrariety: in the social common sense, or in the conceptual system aware, is Live Birth, not death. Of course that the subversion of this concept enriches your photo and she reveals what is submerged to appearances. In fact, if we think well, Birth always bring Death. Everything that comes alive, dies - (I'm not talking of ideas, memories or history heritage). This subversion is reinforced by the birth of the dry tree, not by the front of the womb but through behind, through it's backs. For onother point of view, there are in fact "stillborns"...
I'm sorry to analise your work and to made a kind of "art criticism" - for me it's just to put in words what in the first place I felt and thought.
I felt a global idea with some kind of pessimism, a valid and legitimate overview of our world - or some aspects of it. I personally call it realism in the sense that brings out the essence of living in our days. Yes! We can call it surrealism, without keeping the André Breton manifest or some later teorys in mind.
Jus to finhish: above all my very first perception, was the primitive and pre-historical conjunction of the feminine being/gender with the earth and with the tree of life (present in all mitologies and religions in the world), reflecting our colective inconscient (a subject with which I work).
