The Tourbillion Paintings were realized between November 2021 and early March of 2020, while Dominique was reeling in grief from unexpectedly loosing her father that September. The work accurately reflects a sense of shock, and a search to re-anchor her psychic center. Unlike much of her prior painting, which contains gestural under-painting, and resolves with either a radially symmetrical or other geometric compositional overlay, here, those final measured devices are absent. These paintings led immediately to the Pandemic Paintings.
