“Reve de Rangoon,” oil on photographic reproductions of her oil paintings

The base of Beatrice’s paintings is photographs of smaller diary-like sketches.  These photographs are painted on in bright colors and presented as diptychs.  They show the fantastic landscape and the spirit of Buddhism in the sub-tropic world of Indochina.  But they might be traitorous: different layers show different truths.
