Nancy and Barrau's paintings is a learn of lifestyles, plural worlds, and what the authors name the struction or rebuilding of those worlds.

We quickly locate ourselves residing between tons of wierd bits and items which are gathering with none unifying strength or heart, residing not just in a time of smash and fragmentation yet in a single of rebuilding.
