The artist was fascinated by the Flaneur Figure, who surfaces in Existential Literature. She contemplated how it would feel to walk aimlessly around the City, with no goal in particular. She might even want to get lost in the City. The artist painted a stranger walking near an underpass in her neighborhood, in Evanston, Illinois, USA, near Chicago. She adores painting rusty surfaces such as posts, lintels, and other architectural details. She broke
down the boundaries between the figure and the ground to create a painting that is on the verge of abstraction.
