The Divinity of Motherhood
Mothers are a bridge that connects the heavens and the Earth. Through pregnancy and childbirth they usher us in from the spiritual world into this present world. They serve as our very first guide into this plane of existence, giving us a glimpse into the divine nature of God.
Sinclair’s work is centred around black identity. “With my art I speak on our hopes, our strength and our beauty as a people, it is also a means to rewrite the black narrative, retell black history, and highlight our need for unity. The fragility of a single thread points at our weakness when we chose to stand alone. The layering of thread on thread almost seems to wax an impenetrable fortress which points at our strength if we all stand together”. Like the African proverb that says, “The strength of the broom lies not in the power of a single frond but in the resilience of its united fronds.”
