With Tess and Narza intertwined and tightly cropped, their forms take on landscape-like qualities. The soft tones cover from the mid-ranges and dip barely into black, reinforcing the somber feeling of the reclined poses. Their bodies complement and contrast each other as they highlight the confines of an unexplained restriction. More deeply, the contortion is almost at a catatonic state, disrupted only by the softness of Tess’ gaze and the curves of her facial features. In the foreground is a gentle incline leading to the smooth plane of Narza’s torso, lying parallel and in calculated stillness.
