For her entire career as an artist, Nikki Maloof has been afraid that she only has a finite number of paintings within her. Whenever she puts one on canvas, she’s worried that she’s tapped from the decreasing number of paintings still left — like eggs from an ovary, perhaps. “This could be the end,” she always tells herself. From the perspective of a critic who has watched her work for many years, Maloof is not running out of paintings; rather, her talent is swelling, growing, conquering all other painters, like the way the alien proto-molecule conquers human life in the television series 'The Expanse', if you’ll forgive the reference.
