In the past, Escobar's paintings have been dominated by layered images of chains, leaves, and grass, often rendered in a black-and-white palette using airbrush techniques. In the recently completed painting Lost Light, Escobar takes on another color-blue. She has cited the following passage from Rebecca Solnit's 2005 book A Field Guide to Getting Lost as a reference for Lost Light: "The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. The blue is the light that got lost."
