Woman Dematerialising in a Swamp picks up on the artist’s interest in the pregnant female form. A lone figure strides through the night, covered to her shins in a treacly mass identified in the painting’s title as a shallow swamp. Behind her stands a tree, above her its branches. Fiction and reality collide as brightly coloured leaves and birds, perhaps freed from the cage that hangs before her face, are collaged into the scene. The dematerialisation comes by way of her ghostly transparency, as she literally sinks into her surrounds.
