Many of these works are about the intimacy of the body. There is a certain difficulty, a taboo even, about representations of the physically intimate in western art. The sexual and the romantic have claimed our attention while the body intimate remains marginal and embarrassing. Yet having exorcised the ghost from the machine, we must admit that we are fundamentally the body and its experience.
