Theresa and I, Dreaming of You, informed by Bernini’s Ecstasy of Saint Theresa, presents an architectural tapestry of elaborate, sensual forms modelled in a white porcelein-like clay on a black blackground with gold details. The sculpture intentionally conflates religious and sexual ecstasy by combining the visual vocabulary of both; phallic towers, heavy-lidded eyes, stacks of breasts, among other forms, rise out of a turbulent sea of fabric.
