Birth and Figure Art- about 'The Birth Project'

'The Birth Project' series are life-size paintings of women in pregnancy, labour and birth, and postpartum. The images come from photographs of births Amanda has experienced or witnessed, and submissions from viewers worldwide.

Why birth art?
Amanda believes strongly in the power of the image to shape our perceptions and beliefs. Painting is the last great traditional medium, and she feels that little compares to the impact a large oil painting. Amanda cares deeply about women's issues, particularly birth and motherhood, and paints from that passion. The 'Birth Project Paintings' series is because of and for women; it seeks to tell their stories while providing an image of birth that is both symbolic and real; depicting the raw power of the birth process and the unfolding potential of a woman. Amanda feels these paintings have a place in the public sphere where they can provoke conversations about birth and choices, conjuring emotional responses and encouraging storytelling. Amanda loves to hear about how the paintings affect the viewer- whether it be waterbirth conversation in a midwife's office, or the recognition of capability when a mother finds herself birthing in the same position as the 'woman in the painting', or the healing someone finds when seeing her experience reflected.
