In the early days Felix employed various maneuvers to achieve the impression that a painting has more than one emotional center. To create a sense of a psychological rift within the painting Felix would sometimes establish seperate psychological zones by bluntly dividing her picture into two parts and then treating each as a place for drastic stylistic contrasts, as in Ends of the World Series/ Late Thursday (1986), which essentially functions as two shaped paintings butted up against one another.- Richard Huntington
