Tabula Rasa

"....a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

The sensual with its beauty and possibility of decay is set beside immutable statues of the Virgin Mary. Images from technological viewing of the body's inner invisibilities - x-ray, MRI, electronic tarot - are juxtaposed with external surfaces - artist's renderings of inscrutable Mary. Skin and blood, paint and plaster hint at inner life.
