"Her phenomenal ability to recall past trauma, synthesize life into contemporary allegory and metaphor and humorously lure us into her personal vision, her art in a word is a re-reflection impulse, it is impulsive, imbued with a dangerously honed whimsy and the result is riveting and inexpressible"
"Additionally her milieu (her oeuvre) her art has literally driven her to seek and find mystery and paradox and at the very core of that which can only be described as an enigma."
"Her wit can virtually ricochet off our subconscious as the quintessential juxtaposes meaning with the absurd."
Comments by noted Artist and Art Historian Johnny Lao.
Derrida stresses the Greek etymology of the word "horizon": "As its Greek name suggests, a horizon is both the opening and limit that defines an infinite progress or a period of waiting." Justice, however, even though it is un-presentable, does not wait. A just decision is always required immediately. It cannot furnish itself with unlimited knowledge. The moment of decision itself remains a finite moment of urgency and precipitation. The instant of decision is then the moment of madness, acting in the night of non-knowledge and non-rule. Once again we have a moment of irruptive violence. This urgency is why justice has no horizon of expectation (either regulative or messianic). Justice remains an event yet to come. Perhaps one must always say "can-be" (the French word for "perhaps" is "peut-être," which literally means "can be") for justice. This ability for justice aims however towards what is impossible.
