In accordance with the mutability of the allegorical record
The artists Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman
elucidate The Naked Truth
in an encounter with the Sibyls and Prophets
–seers and storytellers through whom sacred prophecies flowed–
once depicted by the painter of much renown
Michelangelo
who made manifest the divine
in monumental physical glory
as he served to justify authority
Herein
draped and undraped
one upon the next
Signifying the shift of power
in the auspicious year of Two thousand seventeen


Pliant History: Sibyls and Prophets
Piezography prints. Series of 20. 7 x 10.5 inches, 2018. Edition of 8.

We are poised in a turbulent moment, straining against the structure, culture and institutions of
power.  Reflecting the complexities of confrontation, portraits of contemporary women coalesce
with Michelangelo’s archetypal images of authoritative seers and storytellers. Our figures exert
powerful forces as they insinuate themselves through cracks in the past, embodying layered
iterations of a transitory present.
