Black Moon Lilith is a series of handcrafted collages that explore the Wild Woman archetype and the reclamation of primal feminine power, which has been repressed and stolen through a myriad of ways over millennia, including but not limited to patriarchy, religion, colonisation, witch trails, war, rape and pornography.

Black Moon Lilith refers to an aspect in astrology, which represents the latent power and desire that is hidden within us. In Hebrew mythology, Lilith was Adam’s first wife, not Eve. Lilith refused to lie underneath Adam during sex and she was exiled from the Garden of Eden because she would not be subservient to Adam. Lilith represents feminine power and sexual liberation.

Images of women from vintage Playboy magazines have been recontextualised as powerful deities. The demure submissive gaze of the centre-fold has been replaced with the fierce gaze of a powerful untamed creature. These wild woman are at home in the wilderness, adorned with feathers, flowers, fins, claws, horns and wings, they give expression to primal feminine power. These collages seek to redefine female sexuality and sexual desire as a wholesome natural state free from conditioned submission, repression or shame. The snake symbolises the Kundalini or life force energy and the potential to harness sexual energy for enlightenment. The snake is also an ancient symbol of the Goddess, healing and transformation.
