Sky with No Ceiling focuses on the societally imposed challenges that women have historically experienced and continue to experience today. Social change does not progress without challenges, struggle, and conflict. The dense flecks of color populating the surface, light against dark, muted against vivid, come together to ultimately create an image simultaneously unified and disparate, often reflecting the alienation of the subject itself. If we as a society can acknowledge various differences are obstacles, increase people’s awareness and understanding, that we can work effectively to improve the situation and have no boundaries, like a sky with no ceiling.

"In her textured paintings on burlap, Ames renders the human form into a countless series of pointillist-style splotches that alternately combine and separate to represent the multitude of moments, experiences and memories that make up our identities. Expanding her range of possible mediums, Ames also constructs sculptures, converting the tactile bodies in her paintings into tangible three-dimensional objects." Emily Colucci in Frontrunner Magazine
