“Anomaly” - 2023 “Outstanding Senior Collection” award winner
Patricia Latina Golden’s three loves: astronomy, ancient folk stories and fashion. The collection highlights the inherent strength of women, particularly as represented by Tiamat, the Mesopotamian goddess of the sea. The epic tale Enūma Eliš begins in a state of primordial chaos, where Tiamat’s death ultimately results in the creation of the heavens and earth. Golden drew inspiration for her interpretation of Tiamat’s story from the texture of meteorite surfaces, parallel dimensions, and the vastness of space.
