I burn the whiteness of your fingers with kisses . . .

Unknowing where her fingers strayed . . .

I feel her kitten fingers on my breast . . .

Tricky-fingers Sappho, that peerless crooner (Jong).

And so we steal a little from Sappho. We pickpocket her finger-phrases and anachronistically appropriate them for our exhibition’s thematic narrative.

And because we are light-fingered we borrow from many sources.

Romaine Brooks was ‘the thief of souls’, piano players practice to perfect 5-finger exercises, KFC unsuspectingly promotes ‘finger-licking good’.

Our legacy insists we visit multiple sites and claim them as our own.

Our artworks offer adroit and nimble female fingers. We have spotted fingering frogs and feline-esque females. We have the stealing of souls . . . and the legacy of the Paris salons. We have the post-modern ironic ‘lesbian’ movements of the 21st century and twist them to fit our belief in a necessary lesbian future.

We steal when we need to. We take what is ours.
