Sat Oct 21, 1989 - Wed Nov 22, 1989

New Works on Paper was a collection of ten drawings, prints and woodcuts. “Her subject matter is the human figure, and the figure depicted is always a self-reflexive expression of the artist herself. Following in the tradition of expressionist art, she transforms reality, rather than imitating it, in order to communicate an inner vision which is often highly spiritual…

“Each work can be seen as a variation on a theme which occupies the artist’s creative vision: the conflict or merging of body and spirit; the conflict between motion and stability; coming to terms with one’s destiny as a woman and a human being; the act and process of creation –which is, of course, the essence both of life and art.”
