On view in Gallery 2, The Twelve Labors of Hercules suite is the culmination of Pozzatti's career-long interest in this enduring Greek mythological subject, and how its themes of strife, heroism and redemption resonate in our own time. Recently published by Normal Editions Workshop, these large-scale lithographs showcase Pozzatti's supple and expressive drawing technique.
