WENATCHEE — Dyanna Flores’ eyes scanned the thick, leather-clad torso propped on a pedestal at the Robert Graves Gallery. The sculpture’s broad shoulders and sewn-on bullets implied manliness. Its curvaceous waist and bust boasted femininity. Gender aside, Flores said the first thought that came to her mind was: There’s a lot of emotion here.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” said the 18-year-old Wenatchee Valley College student. “Just the darkness of it; it has a lot of feeling, a lot of character.”
