GAIA. Primordial Goddess. Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas. 36x48”, 2019

To the Greeks, Gaia was the ultimate goddess of raw, maternal power. In the beginning, there was chaos, nebulous ethers waiting to take form. This primordial landscape awaited direction; it was then that the spirit of Gaia arrived to give structure to the formless, and the Earth was conceived. She became the Earth, birthing all forms of landscape, plants, and creatures. Though her creation was majestic, her solitude was great. She longed for love and created the sky with whom she mated, igniting a creative force which birthed countless offspring: Time and the Fates, the Muses, and the oceans, to name a few. She is considered the primeval mother from whom all gods—and life itself—descended.

As the prevalence of gods and goddesses in the 19th and 20th centuries faded away, so did history books’ tales of female pharaohs, women scientists, and Amazon warriors. History is often kept by the victors, who are most often men. This left a void in collective consciousness, and Gaia was relegated to mythology alone.

With the convergence of feminism in the 1970s, all that changed when a groundbreaking pro-female establishment was founded, providing new understanding of how our planet operates.

Far beyond the mythological Gaia, the name has come to represent an all-loving, nurturing, and intelligent cosmic force that oversees life on Earth. The goddess traditions have worked tirelessly to resurrect the ancient teachings of the Great Mother and ensure her presence as a force of love on the planet.” ~ ANDYE MURPHY
