Toni Bertucci (she/they) is a local mixed media artist and writer.
This collection of images is part of an ongoing project called Evil__Omen. Evil__Omen is
an invocation and vivification of the latent power, wisdom, and animal
joy found in bodies and iconography that some religious traditions have
denigrated, feared, and dismembered. It seeks the satisfaction of
kneeling before bodies deemed evil, and re-naming them as wells of deep,
"There are no unsacred places;
there are only sacred places
and desecrated places."
- Wendell BerryABOUT ORCA BOOKS
