She creates environments. (...) A wall built in cement blocks, about 30 cm lower than the ceiling, and set at approximately one third's distance from the back of Melinda Wyatt's gallery. Light passed through the upper opening, while in the centre a small window overlooked a neutral white space full of light. On the floor you could see the wooden shape of the window that would fill in the hole and complete the surface of the wall, covering the light.
