MOBA Art Too Bad To Be Ignored
MOBA : The Portraiture Collection


Museum Shop items featuring this work:

Mama and Babe
Acrylic on canvas by Sarah Irani, 1995
Donated by the artist

The flesh tones bring to mind the top shelf liqueurs of a border bistro. With an astonishing emphasis on facial bone structure, the artist flirts with caricature and captures features of Mamma's face which remind us of a Presidential candidate. The upright marionettish pose of the babe hints that the early bond between mother and child is as formal as it is familiar. Good old fashioned parental respect is at the center of this celebration of color and contour.
