Pasithea and Pastis ….

I have been inking and printing editions of my last 2 drypoint plates in time for next weekends Open Studio event.  I have been asked about the process I use so.I thought I might explain.Each image starts with one of my life drawings …these are real women, that is important to me . Then I work with the image and feel if an archetype wants to make itself known 🌀 The image is then transferred  to a perspex plate with etching tools. The the plate is ready to ink and finally print …..  I also use a top plate for ink effects and a mix of colours.  These are the last 2 for a while ..Pasithea – Goddess of Visions and Hallucinations and Pistis – Goddess of Honesty.

“Let My worship be in the
heart that rejoices, for behold,
all acts of love and pleasure
are My rituals.”  Doreen Valiente

Pasithea - is an ancient Greek Goddess – she was the personification of meditation, relaxation, visions and hallucinations. She is associated with the poppy flower and its power of journey into the realms of dreams.  Her partner was the God Hypnos – god of sleep.
