This autobiographical work painted when I was forty, is a symbolic statement about my relationships with my husband and another man. The decorative style of the connected phallus containing the life giving sperm is inspired by the design of medieval church windows. The colours and background pattern are inspired by my interest in ceramics and weaving. I consider it to be a seminal painting in my body of works.
