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. If that point expands equally in all directions a circle is created. Move to any point on that circle’s circumference and create another circle of equal diameter. The overlapping of these circles creates the form the vesica piscis. “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine” is an installation that uses the upright vesica piscis as a symbol that connects with the Great Mother. From two, come many. This form represents the portal of creation, both in life and geometry.
