‘The composure of stoicism, be it mind or body, can appear paradoxical. Even the tightly

bound stoics amongst us can experience an unravelling. The shroud motif

demonstrates this transition, as in the diptych The Rise and Fall of a Stoic, where on

the left a poised figure is bound into an organised assemblage, seeking security in

their covering and shadowed corner, while on the right there is an undoing and

release towards vulnerability’. Kerrie Oliver
