Currently on display in the gallery this 3 foot high and 7 foot long collaborative diptych draws you over to it.  It pulls you in and begs you to look close.  The fine colored pencil work of Mandi Antonucci is balanced perfectly by the collage elements on the left half of the work done by Rob Antonucci.  The work is a push and pull of emotions, from chaos to calm and back again. All of these different elements; the puff of lily pedals, eerily calming around these straining hands, the screaming tiger head of a figure with a bird calmly resting on its finger and the lily in the foreground while the shadow of what looks like the grim reapers sickle  lurks in the background, lead the viewer on a roller coaster of a journey through the minds of two individuals as one.
