About the Piece
When getting ready to start a new piece, I often look back
through my art journals to review different ideas. When I was
looking for ideas before starting the Four Pope Joans I came across a
small thumbnail sketch from 1998 of four pregnant women
standing back to back, which became the inspiration for this piece.
Furthermore, I have been heavily influenced by Indian Goddesses and their myriad
of waving arms and spinning legs and the lyrical patterns they create.
The four women in this piece can represent four different
popes, or different aspects of the same women. The echoing pattern of the four women adds strength through repetition
to the concept of a divine feminine power.
