Erika Lizee – Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine

Erika Lizee recently completed an 8’ x 13’ x 2′ installation for the “High Priestess” exhibit at ArtShare LA, titled “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine.” In this piece, Lizee is contemplating the idea of representing existence as a single point.

From two, come many. This form represents the portal of creation, both in life and geometry.
