EDIT : Nope, it's NOT an anti-abortion piece... Some people mentionned about the previous one looking like an embryo and I just thought I could try to make a second piece based on this (hence the heart to make this one look like a "realistic" version of the yin-yang one).

This is actually a subject I'm pretty ill at ease with, having a true phobia of pregnancy and everything which has to do with embryos/ftus so for the ones who mentionned the "disturbing" aspect of the picture, I can relate to this feeling... ^^;

Same bubbly madness as my "What life is made of..." piece :slow:

As many people wrote about the yang shape looking like an embryo, I thought I'd give a try to a "realistic" embryo shape.
The concept is similar but a bit less metaphorical :)

Although I've practised "bubble sculpting" for two more days, it's still damn time consuming and hard but also quite funny now that I've found the good "long-lasting bubbles" receipe :)

Anyway, I like how the embryo shape turned out there (especially the foot :heart:) but I don't really like the umbilical cord "heart-shaped knot"...
I've had a very hard time with this part and I'm still not fully satisfied with it but the bubbles on the embryo part started bursting so I had to stop and take the photograph else I would have had to start again ^^;

I guess I spent around 30 or 40 minutes on this one :)

As for my previous piece, the embryo shape is not edited, I darkened the "oil blobs" on the black part to make the background as clean as possible but I kept the original bubbles-sculpture shape. I wish I could have "sculpted" better hands and heart but I guess I'll do better next time ^^;

Water + sunflower oil + dishwashing liquid + strawberry syrup
2 small syringes (one with needle and one without needle)
kitchen roll (it proved to be more efficient to burst bubbles than the knife I had used on my previous piece)

For someone who claims to fear child bearing, (I am guessing more child rearing...) you pull at the most primal and beautiful of heartstrings with this peice. In spite of any socio political views the desire to love and nurture a child is as much a part of a woman as boobs and girly parts.... (please forgive the crudeness of that last) It is natural and the life developed in the womb is precious... you have created a beautiful piece... I love this. Art isn't just the reproducing of an image in media but an experience, a journey as well for the viewer and the artist. A good artist doesn't just make pretty pictures but draws an emotional response from the consumer... regardless of the intent. I think you really have something here! Keep up the good work, I would never in my life thought of bubbles as an art medium but have often admired the rainbows on their surfaces while washing the dishes... LOL

VERY well deserved DD, true patience and talent should be rewarded. I'm so happy to see this site still gives a damn about great artists. Congratulations :D

I love it when people can do art like this and not have it be anything more than you wanted to express a vision you had thanks to another piece of art you created. No political back-slaps or anything, it's awesome. As for bubble-sculpting, I've never heard of it, but it looks absolutely fantastic...even with the time consuming qualities, I think I'd really like to try this one day. Any pro-tips on where to begin?

Congrats on the DD, it's an incredible piece. Now I have to go look at those rat pictures.

Wow, respect for your patience and for doing such a motive even if you have a phobia. I couldn't do it. Actually this picture makes me kind of sick, because I have phobia of pregnancy, pregnant women and everything which has to do with it. But the art form itself is really great. That is so amazing and very creative.
And I also have to say thanks to you because while I went through your description and the comments I didn't feel so alone with the phobia and maybe disgust anymore ;-)

I hope I'm not being rude or over stepping bounds or osmething like that(feel free to jsut ignore this comment I will not be offended) but did something cuase that kind of phobia to happen or has it always been there.

Again I hope I'm not over stepping any bounds or anything, I'm always curious about these things and reading about them can only teach so much, hearing it from someone first hand is always far better.

I don't think it was always there at least not as a phobia. But I always knew that I never ever wanted to become pregnant and never wanted to have children in my near. I don't hate them but I can't bear them ( for me they aren't cute or anything) and I'm just not the person to be a mother. So one of my biggest fears was always to become pregnant (I'm preventing double and still have the irrational fear that I could become pregnant)...over the years the fears developed more and more to disgust and an irrational fear. I even can't stand pregnant women next to me or see something about it in TV. It kind of makes me sick and fear or panic grows again. I don't know how I could describe it better. The imagination of something maybe growing inside of me against my will like a parasite really creates a panic.
The first time I really feared I could be pregnant was after a rape and it disgusted me. That didn't changed...pregnancy is still a total nightmare for me.
Sorry if my English isn't that good...-.-

Your english is fine. Better then many native speachers I've read on the internet.

I can relate to not thinking babies are cute, they look like aliens, I'm more afriad of breaking one then anything else.

Thank you for the reply, and as someone who had an incredibly close call as far as a rape incident goes I can to some degree at least relate to the sort of emotional backlash it cuases. (I will not be alone in a room with a male that I haven't known for along while, and the few times it has happened I never stop watching them, and take an inventory of whats around me.)

Phobias by definition are irrational fears, with no reason behind them.

:iconladykylin:
LadyKylin Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011
They can have a reason behind htem though, the only requirment is that they are irrational and cuase a complusion to avoid the subject of the fear. Many people with phobias have some incident that cuased it to grow to the extent it is.

Maybe a handful, but most phobias are meaningless. Once you put meaning behind it, it's not "irrational."

LadyKylin Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011
the reaction to the trigger isn't nesccairly rational. Being terrified of something becuase one bit you once is not rational unless that something happens to be be along the lines of a highly posionous spider that could kill you in one bite. A lot(if not all) phobias have some reasoning behind them, but the reaction to it is far worse then what is considered normal.

Wow, I'm amazed! OUO I never thought about bubble-sculpture and I must say that I'm really fascinated! At first, I thought you took a photo of random bubbles and then you edited and made the shape of the embryo. What a surprise reading how you realised it! Please, keep up the great work! Your pieces are very original and filled with quality :aww::heart:
