Bearing The Dog II


Oil Painting/ Mixed Media



A standing wooden panel with ceramic relief, called Bearing1he Dog, is Cline’s largest work on display in the exhibit “In Tongues of Angels”. The piece takes a somber look at motherhood. A scarred, severe woman. Her arms are crossed and her abdomen is open showing a dog fetus. The figure confronts the viewer tete-a-tete, cheerless, remote, and saturnine. It’s as if she regrets bringing a female infant Into a male dominated world. There are battles women face that men are immune and oblivious to.
