“The work primarily is about reflections in water. I have been making work about water, tears, seascapes and light for a while now. Water primarily is about emotion for me and I find being with water and painting water a very cathartic process. The seeming stillness of the water then a frenetic reflection is exciting to draw.” – Gina Waldman.
