About artist/note:

As Cindy Richmond notes: “The still lifes suggest a painter who is deeply moved by her subjects, which take on a kind of spiritual significance for her.” Bobak’s still lifes and interior scenes have a superb sense of composition, while achieving “an aesthetic unity in which color, form, and texture are fully integrated, and which at the same time expresses the painter’s evident love and awe of her subject matter.”
