For the last several thousand years, our world has been dominated by patriarchy, which elevates God the Father over Mother Earth, and man over woman. But it hasn’t always been this way. For eons before there were societies that thrived in more egalitarian, peaceful and sustainable cultures.
Some people say that what we’re seeing in the world now is the last gasp of patriarchy, and that we’re in for a big change — the rise of the sacred feminine.
The idea of the sacred feminine intrigues me, and I decided to create a series of paintings around this concept.
This new painting in the series is titled “A Celebration of Diversity.” It’s an expression of gratitude for the many life forms that coexist in harmony and balance on the planet, and allow us to thrive.
This painting has a lot of layers. The strong texture and variety of marks remind me of an ancient cave painting on weather-worn rock.
