Can there be beauty in deformity? What is the impact of the exquisite and the grotesque on the mind and senses? What happens to a person when faced with seeing something they cannot describe? When talking about the work of fine artist Fotini Galanes, there is no disagreement that it is excruciatingly detailed, exquisite, subtly unsettling. Her fascination with seeing how humans respond to the work delivers forms the brain does not know how to interpret or process, but what it all means is another question, one you will need to decide on for yourself.
