ARTalk: "The Figure in Art: Naturalistic, Symbolic and Expressive", with Daniel Helgemo: Tuesday, June 12, 6 - 7 pm
In the Persistence of the Figure exhibition, the body becomes a vehicle for addressing meaning in the human condition with themes centered around empathy, shame, and consumption. The artwork encompasses multiple mediums including painting, drawing, ceramics, found objects, and sculptures. Artists Brandi Read (Glendale, AZ), Colleen Critcher (Florence, SC), Gill Alexander (Miami Beach, FL), Lucy Bailey (Irmo, SC), and Michael Benvenia (Lancaster, Pa) chronicle their continual experimentation with the boundaries of the human figure.
