Working from the figure, artists bring a vitality of observation, knowledge and feeling that enriches our understanding of human relationships and experience. Drawings in particular have the capacity to express qualities of immediacy, and to reflect artistic legacies. This exhibition presents the drawings of four artists who cultivate a precise and empathic involvement with the figure as a vehicle for the expression of subtle states of awareness and consciousness. Private rites of passage, figures in relationship, and images recollected from earlier generations of artists comprise the range of works represented.
Exhibition curated by Rebecca Allan in collaboration with Hallie Cohen.
