Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents the 6th edition of our portrait show. Baby Mama, is inspired by medieval and renaissance religious depictions of the Madonna and Child. A hand-selected lineup of top contemporary figurative artists will bring this archetype into a modern context, using present-day imagery and iconography to put a new twist on the classical icon, and interpreting Madonna and Child through the modern lens.
