DN: All of Sandra R. Fourlis' work is based on her imagination. This is one of her earliest paintings in an expressionistic style that is influenced by her experience in printmaking. In keeping with this experience she employs a limited palette of earthy colors. Herewith she represents two reclining figures in the nude. Fourlis explores the contour of human anatomy in terms of curved lines, which caress the body and intersect with one another. She suggests volume by means of soft gradations of shadows. This work is evocative of the horizontal movement of the reclining body. The viewer may discern one body looking up and another looking down, but it may as well be the same body moving through time.
