The Oracle

Oracle

For years I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind to create a series of digitally manipulated images on goddesses. I couldn’t figure out what exactly I wanted to explore with this work, but now at last I have. Rather than trying to reinterpret specific goddesses with each image, I’d think I will create each work based upon different archtypes or aspects typically represented by them.

This image, featuring my friend Susie, is the second completed image in this series. It took me a ridiculously long time to complete it because I became lost in the finer details. I will start on a third one soon.
