Mesmerizing.

I like the use of collage as a technique for the separation of tonal and paint stroke variation areas.

what is that artist doing? what is that picture of

cool

Good TEMA.

I really like this, it's dynamic and there's a lot to see/imagine. Mind you, I prefer her latest work which is somewhat darker than the 2005 work. Merci Mrs.Authier.

Love the texture and color in this work.

It's remarkable how your style has progressed since 2005. I really like these later works.

confusing, and not enjoyable to me

My first thought on first look was "stunning!" Passion and powerful are the words that the work speaks to me.
