Effinger is interested in a psychological as well as a structural reading of the human figure; in the depiction of more than surfaces, in finding what is essential in identity, gender, and their relation.
"Anchored in the surface of every work of art is a moment, a gathering of moments, that radiate the light of their origin; as with all things in the natural world, as with people, the space that a painting occupies does not end at its skin--it touches thought, extends into one's life, changes everything."
"Darkness knows its own purpose."
