Membrino’s paintings deal first and foremost with issues of time and memory. Though the imagery in her work has become increasingly abstract in recent years, clear indicators of the artist’s interest in the tradition of studio-based observational painting are apparent. Seductive, curvilinear geometries and planes of glowing color are not detached from the real, but instead feel governed by the visual cues of objects in space: gravity, shadows, reflected light, and modeling. In this way, each work presents a formal situation that is in some ways akin to the shallow pictorial space of still life, complete with legible figure-ground relationships.
