Figuratively Speaking: Bringing figure and shape into focus

 

The universal appeal of basic shapes and figures, expressed in images that range from portraits to landscapes to still lifes, is brought into the spotlight in the exhibition Figuratively Speaking. The artists in this show employ a diverse range of approaches and media, using photography and the tools of digital art, as well as oils and acrylics, to illustrate the many forms and meanings that the figure can take. Whether those figures represent people, animals, objects or beings that solely exist in the artist’s imagination, they all bring a strong energy to the paintings or photographs built around them. In abstract and representational settings, they confirm the power that the relationship between figure and background holds. From bright, sharp images in which the subject stands out clearly to moody, densely textured works that put the figure at a tantalizingly remote distance, these artists offer a surprising variety of ways to bring that relationship alive. They all demonstrate how one of art’s basic concepts is always open to new, fresh interpretations.

 

Figuratively Speaking opens July 8th, 2016 and run through July 28th. There will be a reception open to the public on Thursday July 14th, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.
