This March 14th, come out for an evening of art and light refreshments to celebrate the opening of Figure Focus, an exhibition that presents an exploration of figurative painting by 15 contemporary artists. On view through Sunday April 21st.
What makes the corporeal in art such a seductive subject? Why is figuration in painting so hot right now? Figure Focus aims to address these questions by examining the work of several contemporary painters approaching figurative work from new and exciting perspectives. This exhibition is an invitation to investigate multiple facets of the figure including psychological, societal, and formalistic considerations. The paintings can be viewed aesthetically and conceptually to inspire, confirm, and unmoor historic and current ideas of figurative painting.
Figure Focus has been curated by Andrew Fish, a Boston-based painter who studied at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Fish is represented by Childs Gallery in Boston and is Visiting Lecturer at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Fish is also an adjunct drawing instructor at Lesley College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA.
