This painting merges soft, expressive clouds with a foreboding scene of comets falling from the sky. For this composition, the artist drew from medieval painting; the sky and comets are rendered in flat and bold colors, suggesting an ecstatic state of mind. 

Lee Maxey’s paintings fixate on familiar domestic spaces, warping the mundane into queer emblems of a controlling and mystical world. The artist's works revel in a world of spiritual otherness that borders on paranoia, creating spaces that are open to multiple interpretations. The artist's religious upbringing, which she chose to leave, primed her to seek meaning from the ordinary. Maxey paints with egg tempera, an ancient medium that further connects her work to a long history of persuasion and beauty.
