We have a new juxtaposing display in the Octagon Gallery (Gallery 10) which features two hyperreal male figures: St Sebastian (1530s) by Renaissance artist Alonso Berruguete and Action 125 (2011) by contemporary artist Reza Aramesh. Although sculpted nearly 500 years apart, the materials, scale and the idealization of the male body are similar. Both sculptors have focused on pain and suffering, defiance and martyrdom.
