This insistence on fleshy tactility may seem to distance and shelter Prieto's art from the dematerializing
effects of computer technology, and yet the role of the computer is more primary in her paintings than in either Appel's or Calame's.
The wall changes from opaque to translucent, from textured to smooth, from grey to blue-green, dematerializing
as it rises to heaven.
This seems confirmed by the fact that in many of the paintings the cross dissolves into the halo that surrounds it, dematerializing
into a kind of afterimage.
