The Triple Goddess
This Triple Goddess draws inspiration from the myth of the ‘Morrigan’; a mysterious figure in Irish mythology. Morrigan meaning 'phantom queen' or 'great queen' describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was associated with destiny, fate, war and death. Known as a shape-shifter she frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, but is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses Ériu, Banba and Fódla. She is depicted through pigment suspensions of Indian Ink, which as a medium integrates its own ancient myth, dating to 26th century BC. It is used with modern polymers to explore female atomic energy centers and water elements characterized by movement and the flowing thoughts and emotions of consciousness. Underlying themes involve personal expansion and the formation of female identity through relating to the world, unity, and participation with of all creation.
