The Goddess – The Divine Feminine

Over the years a recurring theme in my work has been the Goddess. The divine feminine. As a man I have come to adore the sexual aspects of femininity, as a child I learned what the power of a mother is. And as an artist I kneel at the altar of her wisdom. When femininity is elevated to the level of the sacred we can speak of an archetype, a powerful image that resides in the psyche. Everything is enhanced. The dark negative aspects of woman become an all destroying monster, the dark goddess, and the positive aspects become the embodiment of the divine. Both aspects can be recognized in the myths of the world. This is magical thinking. It goes against the rationalism of our times, and therein lies its value. It is a madness, not a malady, and a cure for too much sense. How then can I speak of it. I cannot.
