Entering the Holter Museum of Art’s High Gallery, one’s eyes are immediately drawn to a towering green figure looming above — its head bent sideways.
Nearby, two small figures are huddled on the floor. One points a finger. To what?
A few steps away, two figures embrace with limbs intertwined.
Who are they?
An embodiment of love? Lust?
Their facial expressions seem oddly neutral and emotionally detached.
Some figures are just a few body parts or gestures floating along the wall mural.
