Spiritual Femininity

image by Veronica V. Jones

Laura Pelick

A large creature watches over a reading girl. A red-haired fairy bends over a pool of water. A lavender fairy conjurers a little magic.

The hidden history of the world is a story of powerful feminine forces, long expunged by the patriarchy. Laura Pelick Siadak is working to help reclaim this lost knowledge with her portraits of archetypal female power.

Goddesses, elementals, and fairies hold a stately court in Ms. Pelick’s kingdom of imagination, presiding over deep forests, desert plains, and snow-swept fields. These mythological forces given form are most often confident and serene, but some are tormented by unseen forces or unexplained situation and chose to hide their true faces behind elaborate masks.

Whatever their disposition, Laura’s figures are rendered with varying levels of abstraction, but they always maintain their dignity, femininity, and humanity.
