Curator’s Comments:

 

While it was created some years back, Waiting for Impact resonates with present-day anxiety and angst.  There is a freshness and immediacy to the gesture; one recognizes the proverbial office chair by it’s simple contours.  The primary paint colors of the ground subtly serve to overpower the bent over figure- muted as she is in pale olive green and dull orange.  Her terribly skinny legs and tiny feet further serve to express her vulnerability and powerlessness. It looks like a quick and urgent painting- tapping into a primal human distress and dread. The small scale may also serve to underscore the existential condition.  It is a poignant little piece.
