Body and Blood II, acrylic on linen, 30"x30" © 1993

. . . love's most intimate union
Is through eating, tasting and seeing interiorly.
He eats us; we think we eat him,
And we do eat him, of this we can be certain.
--- Hadewijch (a 13th Century Beguine) [Hadewijch: Works II; Hart]

The Body and Blood paintings use a female glyph to punctuate a circle. Inspired by the bizarre eating behaviors of medieval women ascetics, they aim to transform the traditional symbolism of the Eucharist in order to explore ideas about the maternal experience of food as body, body as food.
