INQUIRE

“The artist has indeed surrendered to the emotion of the process, giving way to her instincts to almost totally dissolve the solidity of her floating figures and absorb them into a spectral array of optical stimuli: rippling highlights, refracted details, passages of blazing light and incandescent color. The painting is a swirling tide pool of color, light, and dynamic brushwork, pulling us into an almost totally abstract visual experience.”
