While writing the previous blog post on the concept of immanence in Nasreen Mohamedi’s body of works – I got to thinking about my own “body” of works and the ongoing appearance of specific archetypal forms and spaces in my work. The series of images titled Horizon that photographer Luis Branco took of me on top of the castle in Evoramonte Portugal come to mind as the performance of the archetype of the feminine. These images “happened” while working with the photographer in a very intuitive and collaborative way. These forms and spaces: the triangle, the trapezoid, the horizon and the feminine form have been apart of my work consciously and unconsciously for decades (and probably lifetimes.) I am slow to figure 🙂 So here is a compilation  of these connected forms in my work:
