Statement

Years of painstaking observation of her home city saw the artist bear witness to unfettered architectural growth, with frantic urban transformation profoundly affecting her work. Her most recent work is a study of tomorrow's landscapes and how they stand to be altered beyond recognition by man's constructions.
