As the Atmospheresseries developed, Chicago introduced female performers into her interventions. In Goddess with Flares from 1972 the artist transforms the female into the divine.

“I spent a considerable amount of time working on images of the feminine as sacred, drawing on scholarship that had demonstrated that all early societies were goddess worshipping,” she says.
