John Pusateri’s ‘Wrest’ is engaging enough without my narrow-minded title. I will let the description of the collection found on his website do the talking:

"The archetypal wrestler is a paradigm for constructed masculinity; in this scenario however, Pusateri’s male subject seems destined to be overwhelmed by his female adversary… These these drawings are marked with the artist’s hand in faceted charcoal, a medium and treatment well matched to the sense of turmoil and struggle between the figures."

Sometimes the right words are already written. Check out more images from 'Wrest' by John Pusateri in the gallery above.
