'Characterized by a remarkable fusion of seemingly discordant elements: past present, figurative and abstract, traditional and avant-garde,' their work together features Renaissance-era figures floating over backgrounds of cryptic text and pattern 'while areas of intricate, realistic detail coexist with expanses of layered color.'
