I was interesting on her arts because some of her arts was so nude and have different feeling. I feel sorry for her because she suicide at age 22; She looked so young and pretty. In the last picture she looked under her hand with reflect the leaves in the water. It looked like the wings. She was wearing the white dress and look so innocent. She looked like a kid who wish to has wings.

Most of her arts were blurry and darkness. They were reflect her lifetime. I think she created her arts during the time she was depressed. She used her body to show her arts like Ana Mendieta. They are used their body to include in arts. they used their body as the part of arts. She was a great artist but her life so short.
