Out the Window, 2011, oil and enamel on linen, 16" x 20". In this painting, a woman holds her hand up to a windowpane, perhaps asking for our help, or testing the limits of her confinement. This image derives from a black and white film still, which has been enhanced by the intensely colorful abstractions in each of the windowpanes.
