    Post Lot Text

    "There has always been an attempt to embrace the idea of duality in our work. Love/Hate, Peace/War, Violence/Beauty. This has a distant place in the world we live and can always be felt as a constant push and pull. That kind of duality has found its way into our work."

    Miller, Faile
