The Divine Feminine

God and women and women and God. This is the double-helix of my life. For me at least, and I only speak for myself, woman is mystery, love and compassion, an omnipresence of beauty and goodness. Sound like God? Goddess? Of course, it sounds like God. Rooted in my childhood experience with my mother, woman and God were (and are) intertwined. When I started painting more seriously a few years ago, this feminine figure kept emerging from my unconscious. Rather than trying to figure it out (and old reflex of mine), I decided to go with it. These paintings are raw. Folkloric. But like most primitive art, each painting is a window into a structured universe. “She Still Sees” acknowledges the feminine power of seeing – despite all brokenness and limitation. In the painting, “She is Astonished,” I’m exploring what I think is at the heart of the universe, namely wonder, joy and mystery. The day we cease to be astonished is the day we stop living. “She is Universe” reflects a sense of universal nourishment that is essential for all of life. “She is Love” also goes to the heart of anything I might believe about God or the human spirit. If we love, we are alive; if we don’t love, nothing else matters. But there is also the reception of love, and that’s what I was trying to capture in this painting, that love moves toward us, welcoming us to an eternal home and offering us acceptance. “She is Happy” is a way of saying that the universe is ultimately benevolent, neither hostile nor indifferent, but fundamentally good and forever (trying) to smile upon our humanity. Finally, “She Broods,” is my way of saying that mystery is essentially a brooding, searching, questioning experience. The divine feminine doesn’t give us answers, but she inspires within us restlessness, a kind of restlessness that is essential to our living.
