Gail Olding - In The Beginning


Acrylic laquer on MDF & Ply 



100 x 120 cm 

In this series of works the sacred feminine is explored, highlighted and celebrated. Its success lies in its inherent ancient symbolism, which creates a point to ponder the boundless, the limitless and even the possibility of magic. Circles represent God , no beginning and no end. In sacred geometry circles represent the Feminine and line represents the masculine. Things move in circles as cycles. Planets, suns, life, etc. It is important to me because it contains a certain spirituality, a realisation of the boundless. It is both peaceful and sexy. Simple and complex. In Geometry the point at which two equal circles overlap is known as the Vesica Piscis. Its direct translation means “Vessel of the Fish” due to its shape.
