Buried Pleasure is an obsessive investigation into the link between vision and desire. Rosalyn Schwartz and Barbara Kendrick explore sensuality and the visual symbols and cultural rituals that express or regulate our impulses. They engage in the discourse of women's sexuality in titillating forms that incorporate feminine mythology and art history. The works have an organic, visceral presence that is both elegant and disturbing.
