Women in the Arts: Breaking New Ground

Triangles have been part of my vocabulary for many years and appear frequently in my sculptures. Triangles, circles, squares are primary shapes like primary colors: red, yellow, blue.  Structurally, triangles are the strongest shape. Any weight placed on them is evenly distributed between all three sides.

Triangles are often associated with feminine energy. The number 3 is a very mystical and spiritual number featured in many folktales (three wishes, three guesses, three little pigs, three bears, three billy goats gruff).   Since triangles contain three corners and three sides they are often linked to trinities.
