Something Exquisite

Helen Carnac enamels via Thinking Through Things

Roger Ballen, Ape Skull

Terri Brooks, Beige with Black Dots

There is something exquisite about the works of Roger Ballen, Helen Carnac and Terri Brooks. We grouped them, using some kind of aesthetic association, because they all are very human in process and markings--gestural and rhythmic, referencing both growth and decay.
