This week, we highlight the artwork of the late Brent Malone in preparation for our upcoming exhibition for Transforming Spaces, MUSE. Throughout his life's work, Malone drew inspiration from a select number of models that nourished his profound interest in the figure.

clarify) and the idea of letting nature melt into the man-made environment
