Sharon Butler blogs about Marie Thibeault: engineering at George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, on view through November 14, 2015.

Butler writes: "In these new paintings, [Thibeault's] focus has shifted to the uncertainty created by violent environmental upheaval and the individual's vulnerability in the face of powerful forces. The jangled, saturated color, buckling architectural forms, shifting landscape spaces, and jittery brushwork give visual form to the artist's anxiety and sense of helplessness."
