Curated by Barbara Foster, Candace Crockett and Sylvia S. Walters
"The figurative tradition in art has never died. The use of the figure gives emphasis to human interests; working from the inside out. The stories which emerge are fragmentary narratives, many are unfixed in time - juggling past and present, and are drawn from a variety of sources - mirroring the complexity of contemporary experience and understanding. Working from the figure allows the artist to consider issues of idealism and realism as well as diverse sources, intuitions, obtuse meanings and fictions. These ideas enliven the fundamental features of work in this exhibition: in painting, sculpture, printmaking, film, and photography."
