Image description: Aileen stands in front of a large abstract and colourful painting. She has short brown hair and is wearing a white jumper and blue jeans. Her facial profile is in view and she is looking down. Her right hand is holding the edge of the painting, and her left hand is down by her side, her index finger extended. Aileen’s feet and some of the painting are out of the frame. The painting has a sky-blue background and an abstract structure drawn in gestural marks and shapes in red, yellow, green, white, and blue. The structure is sitting on top of a large area of creamy pale yellow and red paint, forming the shape of a wave. On her right hand side, a stack of large paintings can be seen in the shadow.
