About This Project

Morgan Ford Willingham


My investigation of motherhood considers how influential nature versus nurture is and the roles of mother and daughter. The images individually and collectively allude to intimate daily circumstances, the historical and cultural influences that shape the identities of each, and the art historical context of motherhood, femininity, and women’s identity. This work presents visual narratives that attest to selfhood, uncertainty, and parallels that are threaded between mother and daughter, and utilizes the historic process of cyanotype on found, vintage textiles.
