Not a Woman, but a God is an art thesis project focused heavily on the understanding of one's connection to spirituality through art ritual. These pieces revolve around an exploration of the metaphysical and how one connects to the universe on a much deeper level through inspiration and artistic expression. Specifically, it uses astrological and pagan ideologies to gain a greater understanding of how art can fuel someone's personal journey, legacy, and rebirth, even after their physical body has died. Through the mediums of painting, poetry, and tattooing, this installation seeks to present the audience with a chance to detach from their everyday self and enter a world of spiritual awakening.

For Artistic Presentations

The project is far too large to present physically at SOURCE. That being said, no files will be attached at this time, as the presentation is not fully complete. The project is due in another week and will be finalized during this period, so any supporting documents will be attached at a later date.
