President Bush was photographed in front of this piece during his visit to Uruguay in 2007.
Spielman uses oil paint on canvas, paper and panel in various sizes; she works on up to forty paintings at a time, moving between them as each begins to form, then isolating a work to bring to completion.
Her saturated surfaces are luminous, with alternate glossy and matte layers, but also bear rough nail marks that scar and deconstruct the work. These etched lines and marks relate to an image and idea, and are often the underlying structure, the submerged language of a work.
Her use of reds and pinks link to flesh and blood, and the pale creams, yellows and blues in her palette often recall bodily fluids, and the pulse of life.
This large oil on canvas is the first piece in Spielman's "New York series". The painting was exhibited in Uruguay via The US Department of State Art in Embassies Program.
