Reference about Hat Yogini’s concept & works:

Re Defining Key Concepts:

• Bardo Mandala: 66 of the 100 Deities are Female!
• Of Secret Mothers and Spiritual Consorts
• Dakini and Yogini: A Comparison
• Uddiyana: Where has it been?
• Gender and Enlightenment
• Rebirth and Reincarnation
• Women of the Himalayas

It is interesting to see that the work mentions quite a number of important and famous Hindu/Tantric goddesses usually not classified as yoginis.

Many of the deities listed here are members of other groups or teams of goddesses as well, especially the Navadurgas, Nayikas (1) and Saptamatrikas are represented.
Gogi Saroj Pal


Gogi Saroj Pal has worked since 1990 on the metamorphosis of the body, parodying earlier (male) representations of the woman- as-nature, to be tamed and domesticated. Implicit with these implications, Gogi's present series focus no longer on a mythic archetype but with emphasis now on an individual woman. Inspired from the celebrated stage actress of the 19th century who wrote her own memoirs in a search for her own identity, her paintings, bold and seductive, in gouache are worked on hand-made paper with fluid transparency, where her body represents states of metamorphosis, moods of wonder, angst and vulnerability as she transforms from an actress into herself.
