The woman in Caris Reid’s painting Mourning Dove looks more like icon than person. She has a purple dove over her eyes like a mask and a beige one on the crown of her head. A third, smaller dove floats on her chest — her whole body is covered in symbols. Another portrait, The Empress, is of a barely smiling woman with precisely rendered stars in her hair and keys drawn onto her shoulders. Two pomegranates float above her. None of the women depicted in Reid’s show at Ochi Projects, called "Healer. Feeler. Seer. Seen.," look happy, exactly. They instead look intent, as if on a mission. They recall novelist Monique Wittig’s “elles,” female hippie warriors who have “let down their hair” and banded together to overthrow the patriarchal state.
