Inclement Weather reflects Grace Hartigan's view that "we are living a very fragmented life.…like being on a very fast train and getting glimpses of things in strange scales as you pass by.…You see the corner of a house or you see a bird fly by, and it's all fragmented. Somehow, in painting I try to make some logic out of the world that has been given to me in chaos."
