This portrait artwork is a tribute to Virginia Woolf, to her writings (Night and Day, A Room of One's Own), to her life full of fragility... it is an evocation of her own words: 

"The inner life has its soft and gentle beauty; an abstract formlessness as well as a subtle charm.

I often consider myself as a figure in a foggy painting: faltering lines, insecure distances, and a merging of greys and blacks.
An emotion or a mood, a mere wisp of color, is shaded off and made to spread until it becomes one with all that surrounds it. "
- Virginia Woolf, A Passionate Apprentice: The Early Journals 1897- 1909.
