Figure Focus presents an exploration of contemporary figurative painting by 15 New England artists.
What makes the corporeal in art such a seductive subject? Why is figuration in painting so hot right now? Figure Focus is an exhibition that aims to address these questions by examining the work of several contemporary painters who make figurative work.
This exhibition invites viewers to investigate multiple facets of the figure including psychological, societal, and formalistic considerations. The paintings can be viewed both aesthetically and conceptually and inspire, confirm, and unmoor historic and current ideas of figurative painting.
