Her body is full of light (often, very often, and in floods).

An image that has lived with the artist for some time now, has been of her and her mother laughing hysterically to the point of tears. When this fleeting image appears, they aren’t sharing the same space. There is a softness to the image – as if the light is shining through them. This imagery invokes the tradition of lamentation in religious texts, the phenomena of the weeping Virgin Mary statues, and the history of hysteria and anxiety.
