Spring 1996


    A computer composition, later rendered as a silkscreen, this image places Virginia Woolf into a matrix of images derived
    from her novel, To the Lighthouse.   The basic design, drawn from a 1926 work by Georgia O'Keeffe entitled Spring,
    is meant to imitate the painting which Lily finishes at the end of the book. The image of Woolf herself is placed
    inside a triangular purple shape to suggest that we relate to her as Lily relates to Mrs. Ramsey. The house
    in the background is Talland House, the summer home in Cornwall which Woolf visited as a child.
    Other images are of her father and of Lytton Strachey.
