Icons and Goddesses
Protect and Connect Series
With the Protect and Connect Series, Patricia focuses her attention on reviving dying icons such as Gaia, as well as creating new icons such as the highly endangered golden frogs. The goddesses, icons, and iconoclasts she represents in her work are mainly used to show how extinct our female icons have become, such as the “unnamed river goddess”. The disappearance of the female influence is mirrored in the ever increasing extinction of small things, like butterflies, frogs and birds. In making these pieces, Patricia is showing her own reverence for the world, and how at this critical time we need to protect it from further states of destruction. Patricia has purposefully mixed up the creatures so that they are not always shown in their original habitat, the purpose of this is to show that this is a global issue, and that these problems are interrelated.
