“One hundred thousand murdered witches in early modern Europe, and that ship sailed straight to Salem. One can ask, "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" (Nochlin) or one can dissect the slaughter that landed on new world soil with a thud.
And what of a witch? In short: Sex and Magic — and isn't that what art is all about?
Witchcraft threads the needle through art history with a whip of hair, falling, tangled, hiding and sliding from one epoch to the next and wondering what imprint might have been made if these women were left amongst us.” - Lily Morris
