This work by Horan & Kitaiskaia re-imagines five literary goddesses as witches & high priestesses & the magic that they are with art & words that sing. See all five at Electric Lit HERE. Unbelievably perfect to me in every way.

"The history of art was written by men, in practice and in theory. Painting has a symbolic and dominant place inside this history, and in the twentieth century it became the major expression of masculinity, especially through abstraction. For me, the choice to be mainly a painter and to use the codes of abstract painting, as they have been defined historically, is not only an artistic challenge: its main meaning is occupying a territory that has been denied to women historically. I occupy this territory aesthetically and politically because I create materially abstract paintings, but I integrate in this male field a feminine universe: that of sewing and embroidery."
