‘Life’ with her spiralling breasts and stomach is the feminine principle of the cycles of life, of fertility, abundance, of infinite growth in an infinite universe. This spiralling form arrived spontaneously years earlier in one of Nunan’s smaller works and like many works that have to evolve over time, this larger work was realised only recently when it was included in the ‘Journey’s exhibition at Australia House in 2018. The woman form and its archetypal symbolism has been a developing theme in Nunan’s work over the past 40 years.
