This portfolio-style monograph by New York–based painter Marina Adams draws from Bernini’s sculpture “The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa” and Picasso’s study of the Weeping Woman for “Guernica.” The juxtaposing of these images–one of ecstasy, the other of agony–inspired Adams’ diptych spreads of vibrating forms and vivid color. Text by Charles Bernstein.
