Everything is Illuminated

2015 -16

She explored iridescent paint both years in a 'seasons' series, and other experimental paintings. Though the luminescence is difficult to photograph, the paintings' reflective qualities are particularly evident at night. Perhaps this work is all a metaphor for what happens to one's work as one's partner's life has ended.
