The Electrics 2007-2010

Betty Ann Brown, art historian, critic, and curator

Vallejo’s beloved subjects—people and nature—come together in The Electrics, the recent paintings that are expressively energized by vivid color and vibrating form. In this series, the artist has returned to the cosmic vision search initiated in her ceremonially imbued art from the 1980s. The paintings depict the altered state of the sacred that Vallejo experienced in Native American rituals.
