Burn Witch Burn
Burn Witch Burn
Custom cotton fabric, linen, wood,
6 modular 40 x 30” triangles

Burn Witch Burn combines various custom fabrics based on text and images from 1970’s feminist publications and my own landscape photos. The essay Burn Witch Burn, published in “Woman: A Journal of Liberation,” (Baltimore MD, 1972), discusses “witches” throughout history as women healers whose empirical approach to medicine threatened religious patriarchal power structures. The modular triangle components can be recombined into numerous shapes, referencing non-hierarchical, flexible systems.
