Emily Furr is a New York based painter whose work references the feminine archetype, which she seeks to restore by working against the current phallocentric age and issuing in a new yonic era. If a phallic signifier points to action, explosion, and fortitude, a yonic signifier points to the subconscious, the sublime, and the cosmic void. A phallus points outward, a yonis inward. If the phallic is physical, the yonic is celestial. Through the small window of her work, Furr disassembles symbols from patriarchal systems to show the female aspect breaking through.
Microcosms: Works on Paper is a series of small drawings using gouache, graphite, and collage. Each work will channel yonic energy in the universe to create its own tiny world.
