Goddesses

Entry Description

My 2017 “Goddesses” series is a group of twelve images, derived though an intuitive riff through my existing bodies of work overlaid upon the houses of the Zodiac, which divide the human experience into twelve distinct domains. The theme here concerns the power of the feminine expressed goddess-like in a patriarchal world which by default attempts to deny it. The structure and flow of the images, some of which are traditional black and white photographs, while others come from previous digital photographic collages, combine in faux still life, using modern digital collage techniques. Art can be a self-portrait of the artist, as well as a mirror in which others may see themselves.
