Terra is a collection of selected drawings which explore the relation between the female body and the earth. There is a universality to this concept present in stories throughout the world.
I chose to focus on elements of the story of The Changing Woman, a native american myth of the Navajo people. I don’t mean to imply that I now understand the essence of the Navajo’s stories and motifs but I have found something of myself in this human tale. This is not a representation, but rather an investigation.The Changing Woman is deeply connected with the earth and the role of women in Navajo tribes. She is the embodiment of different female archetypes, the young and the old woman, the circle of life. Birth, death and rebirth.
