Chrysalis © 2013 Annette Wagner

Chrysalis is what it feels like when we undergo metamorphosis – that state of being unmade, turning to liquid, and emerging new again. She floats in a universe of primordial sky and earth, in that state of in-betweenness.

Nails and rose thorns peel back from her as she begins to emerge from the chrysalis, shedding old patterns as she grows into newness. This process of transformation is never easy, yet it is so crucial to living a whole life.

Acrylic paint on canvas with nails, rose thorns, and gel medium.
18 x 24 inches. Gallery wrap, unframed.
