Venus de Milo meets Michelangelo's David as they blend in cohesions of agony, splitting between the what should and what is, between the projections and the expressions, between the twists and the shout, the appearances and the cracks of the mask. Look at me, I am talking to you.

Two larger than life works that blend bodies in anatomically impossible postures, expressing pain and blurting it out in ways a voice cannot convey, in possibilities that elude the normal and the predictable making its intensity even more visceral and immediate.
