"The Vessel, there is something almost religious about it. The way it’s radiating feels almost Catholic in some way. I can see it going in that direction, the idea of a center of energy and irradiation of that energy and the body. Something that wasn’t as clear before in my work."
—David Altmejd in Boundaries (2012)
