Exquisite Crux is an intimate look into the emotional nature of confronting a traumatic experience. The work displays the body, ungrounded and caught in perpetual oscillation, cycling through moments of graceful ecstasy to elegant torment. The cycle represents a struggle with being completely aware and uninhibited with one’s own soul. In this regard, Exquisite Crux represents the splendid, glorious agony of acknowledgment and healing. The cycle of anguish, epiphany and healing are often an amalgam of contradictory feelings that can be likened to experiencing ecstasy in torment. Exquisite can be likened to a divine experience while Crux represents torment, body and base – providing a structure for these fluctuating and fluid emotions.
