First: the fetal position
Featuring Heat by Theresa Martin (above) and NUDE (squared) by Preston Lawing (below.)
These were not the only two prints in this exchange that featured a curled up naked body. But I was particularly struck by the similarities and differences between these two.
Both are reductions in warm hues depicting women, their eyes closed, arms wrapped around themselves, knees pressed close together. And yet, the woman lying on the ground visibly radiates heat outward, while the woman seated on a hard floor appears to contain her warmth. The one above appears relaxed, perhaps merely curled up while sleeping. The other, upright, seems posed or contemplative. One is connected to the space she occupies, the other is detached.
