Even amid the dark of night, the works are filled with moments of hope and joyful spontaneity. In Sisterhood of the Night (2012), a group of women—perhaps a coven—dances in the darkness. In Guarded Cavern (2012), it is a pair of chubby animals, seemingly distracted and hardly menacing in blue and yellow, that serve to protect the space. And then there are those rainbow-colored leaves in Autumn Road. In her work, Hawkins has found a way to conjure an entire world, one filled with emotion, warmth, darkness and tension, with just the sparest of gestures.
