In "Through a Glass, Lightly" Molly Norris uses fabric to mimic landscape- clouds to fluff, sky, green grass and Monet's hay.  Norris uses found color to collaborate with industry - perhaps similar to how Impressionist painters began to incorporate smokestacks into their landscapes.  The striped, outdoor  "Sun and Shade" fabric is reminiscent of Renoir's painting, "Boating Party".  The altered mirror transforms your reflection into an impressionistic world.
