French feminist writer Hélène Cixous used the term jouissance to describe a form of women's pleasure or sexual rapture that combines mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of female experience, bordering on mystical communion. She maintained that jouissance is the source of a woman's creative power and that the suppression of jouissance prevents women from finding their own fully empowered voice.

My goal for this new year is to embrace and harness jouissance and channel it into my paintings.

This piece is unframed but is wired for hanging.
