Between Mother and Child (2011) by Michael Aaron Hall

The idea for this piece is based on the accounts of one of my ancestors from Europe who joined the Mormon Church in the 19thcentury and sailed for America with her husband and young child. Shortly after they arrived in America her husband died. She eventually met up with a group of Latter-Day Saints heading west to Utah. Her resources were not many, and subsequently she wrapped her two-year-old child in her apron and she walked the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City, Utah.

Visually, this piece was inspired by the works of several nineteenth century artists including John Singer Sargent and William Adolf Bouguereau, as well as photographs of Native American women that were taken in the late nineteenth century. This is a piece that honors the women that helped settle the American West, the Mormon pioneer women, and the women who marched with the Mormon Battalion.

 

Dimensions: 19 ¾ x 6 ½ x 6 ½  in.
