Happy Vernal Equinox, dear Phantasmaphiles. I don't know about you, but after these last few months of darkness of the literal and figurative kind, I am ready for a frenzy of flowers, streaming sunlight, spring showers, and hopefully, a rainbow or twelve. I've been saving up this Johanna Goodman piece for the right occasion, and today feels like the day. Goodman's collages of totemic female beings feel like she's building a new pantheon of creative deities. Costumed in voluminous elemental forms, each is a whimsical yet powerful lady worthy of worship. May this iteration of the goddess Iris help usher in a new season of color and wonder for us all.
(And thank you, Carolyn, for the heads up!)
