Alissa Blumenthal: late work (ca. 1980s)


Blumenthal's uneasy relationship with time and her own physicality (made especially poignant by aging), is most manifest in her late work. These ephemeral pieces hover uncertainly between painting, drawing and writing, possibly revealing the artist's disillusionment in the idea of universal meaning of abstraction.
