This piece was inspired by a couple I saw dancing several years ago. It initially began as a study to understand anatomy, until I realized part of the beauty was the duality of the pair's stance.

Separate at the top and intertwined at the bottom, El Desconocido y La Desconocida (The Unknown Man and Unknown Woman) are both apart yet together - a relational dynamic that simultaneously produces tension and comfort.
