This painting reflects a world where female power is derived from collaboration, self-endowed agency and connection with the natural world. This work is part of a series where the artist projects possible communities of women by drawing from both a historical and imaginative past, present and future. Each painting in the series draws imagery and ideologies from: the Woman’s Land Army from World War I and II; female separatist communities; fairy tales; and literary fiction. In these artworks, Cohn constructs communities that exist in a collapsed time—neither past nor future, but somehow both.
