This surrealist take on the female body encompasses numerous topics I tackle in the novel. There is actually one scene in which one of the main characters, Alda Thunberg, looks on with horror at her ageing, semi-naked body and thinks it is turning into a tree. Moreover, the presence of the eyes in the roots of the tree on the artwork recall the ones present within the paintings by the deceased artist whose presence is "haunting" the novel.
Incredibly, Sabine hadn't read the novel when she worked on her artwork. And I had never seen this image when I wrote the manuscript. This is just pure coincidence...
Or is it?
You can see Sabine's artwork on the "I Am a Muse" page of this website: I Am a Muse
