One recent exhibit (her first solo exhibition with Lulu) was made up totally of paintings OF Lulu--the gallery facade, ladders in front of the building, etc.
These paintings are what I would call painterly realism. The works are almost, just a hair away from, photo-realistic. Yet there is artistry, style, "painterliness" here that is undeniable. Painterly is a word I am using haphazardly in the past few days but I will stand by it in this case.
