Portfolio > Her Sink(s)

Her Sink(s) (2017-on-going). These pictures are my field notes, evidence of consumption—my thoughts, emotions, solitude, duties and scraps. Day after day I attend to what's before me and let light and the remains of my day compose the picture. I find wonder and solace here and occasionally muses.

Of All the Sisters
Patricia Christakos, April 2018

Of all the sisters

Please not Hestia.
Please not the housewife
house frau, house bound

swallowed by Saturn
when darkness prevailed

first in, last out our
goddess of place purged
yet mannered fierce yet
still, her fires
burn brightly
come closer to see

her core. Careful
she burns with
Those eyes, unseen.

Please not the housewife
Please — just the Blaze.
