I’ve long been fascinated by images of the Annunciation, especially in medieval art. As a child I must have been drawn to the same story. When my mother was pregnant with my little brother, I assumed she had found out the way I’d heard about in Sunday school. Her surprised reaction when I asked her if she’d been told by an angel is one of the clearest memories of my early childhood. In this double-sided triptych, I began with an Annunciation by Fra Angelico and wove in the work of Fouquet, De Chirico and others, reworking the moment with anatomical illustrations, a calculus text, and scenes of 1960’s home décor.
