The usual thing in a painting or print that is usually stable is the frame, but in this case it shifts and slips like dislodged masonry. The distortion of the ovals that turn to circles as one moves to left or right before her lithograph, the gold reflected surfaces and shifting frame, the concave backgrounds and flat patterned discs all reconfirm the instability and insecurity of the perception of material objects, the illusion of light and movement. In this regard, it is a spiritual painting, declaring the reality of intangibles and the omnipresence of energy and light.
