From the publisher: "Roberts' odyssey with the painted photograph began in the mid-1970s. She found that painting over a slick photographic surface, she was able to manipulate the paint -- scrape it, scratch it, even wipe it away -- with the luxury of never losing the underlying image. A modern pioneer of the method, Roberts ups the ante with an understanding of human dynamics just short of psychic and a technique that appears unstudied, but is in fact, quietly accomplished. The combination results in a deeply resonant imagemaking, both haunting and profound."
