Deities vs. Covid

Green Tara/Day of the Dead

I am currently mix-mashing Buddhas, Yoginis, Taras and Durgas (sources from ancient Buddhist sculpture and Thangka paintings) with pop and gaming culture, magazine design and advertising, feminist and multi-cultural art history.

While I carry female-centered imagery forward from the 1960s, the mind/ body practices of yoga, qi-gong and meditation are also part of my art-making process. Trying to find stillness and equilibrium in time of plague, I also want to capture the surreal, off kilter feel of NOW.  Buddhist explorations help me to embody “being” and “doing” with humor, awe and connectivity.
