Scolnik’s interior spaces are descriptively painted but, claustrophobic and enclosed, they stop short of seeming like actual places. These spaces in which she places the repeated image of self suggest myriad narrative possibilities. She often paints a scene with an overall palette of one color such as blue or pink. Yet no interior space feels like a haven for comfort or peace, as the home has often been visualized in modern advertising and the media. Instead, Scolnik’s interiors are a space for self-exploration and questioning.
