Drawing on ancient depictions of the divine feminine, my work explores the female figure in the act of creating. In this series, I rearrange existing images of women culled from magazine portraits of nude models. For example, the tiny pieces of paper composing "Playboy Mandala I" are reconfigured to emphasize the navel and nipple not as objects for fetishization but as sources of nourishment and power. This power is also the focus of "Playboy Mandala II," which depicts the sri yantra, a diagram of the process of creative generation, at its center.
