Her elaborate small-scale paintings more often depict family environments, where the artist includes some of her relatives, mainly her aunt and grandmother, and sometimes herself. When Bates inquires into social functions of families and the role of women in creating identities she does that from a personal point of view, but also refers to a broader cultural phenomenon. To create her vibrant, sometimes sunny, somehow dreamlike domestic scenes Bates relies on her technical minuteness, which leads her to work as attentive to detail as a manuscript illuminator. This impression is enhanced by the materials that the artist uses: not only gouache and ink, but also mother of pearl and gold leaf - on panel, not on canvas.

Pour investigates the West-East relationship either by the appropriation and highlighting of iconic symbols derived from oriental civilizations, or by experimenting with traditional Asian techniques. In the past years Pour has worked, for instance, with the Japanese ukiyo-e technique that captured the interest of many Westen artists in the past such as Van Gogh, Degas and Gauguin. Geometric Painting 16 is part of his series Geometric Painting, where he inserts monochromatic portions over oriental scenes that resemble illuminated manuscripts. Thus he combines a historical and cultural specific moment - the figurative Orient - with the ahistorical question of painting’s material - paint and color. Through these monochromatic sections Pour also references abstraction, the culminating point of modernity, where color stands for itself and art is made for art’s sake.

Armstrong’s works seem to contain a coded message about the person that created them, often referring to personal aspects of the artist’s life. However, with secret references to his personal universe, his works also evoke some larger context, such as the idea of American countryside, folk art, and the grand tradition of American and European modernism. One of the most particular aspects of Armstrong’s works is the texture-full encaustic technique, which gives the works a sculptural quality.
