The vision of Drawing Shadows is at one expansive and claustrophobic. The artist works with a complete canvas, detail stretching across roughly six square feet, completely filling the space. Yet this luxury of space only seems to deepen the anxiety around the subject. Her world is a dim candle, the only color in the image (besides the ubiquitous Goodwill price tag). If she looks away, she would see the hand reaching out of the darkness, the tall, threatening figure behind her window, and a looming figure in the window set in the background. The darkness is filled with danger and it threatens to surround her.
