Dumped Before Valentine's

A plaque near Lightman's "Dumped Before Valentine's" carries the quote, "I concentrate all my disappointment and hurt into the tight, sharp point of a pencil lead."

"Dumped" is one result. The triptych begins with a wide view of what she sees from her bench. It continues with the intervention of a call on her cell phone, and ends with the empty bench alone. The images reflect the changes in her emotional world, from being part of a relationship to being alone.

"The time it took you to look at the drawings is the time it took me to be dumped," Lightman says.

"What Hurts You" David Holzel, Washington Jewish Week (June 2012)
