FIGURE  8

The Onward movement of man-

‘Of all the endless variety of phenomena which nature presents to our senses, there is none that fills our minds with greater wonder than that inconceivably complex movement which, in its entirety, we designate as human life. Its mysterious origin is veiled in the forever impenetrable mist of the past, its character is rendered incomprehensible by its infinite intricacy, and its destination is hidden in the unfathomable depths of the future. Whence does it come? whither does it tend?’

Nikola Tesla

 

Eight figurative works by various artists that will each move from the main gallery exhibition space into the more public window display. The show will begin with eight figurative works achieved in the medium of paint.  The show is a simple evocation of the idea that the artist will always return to the human figure whether it is for the simpler reasons of form or for the attraction of its ‘infinite intricacy’. Each piece having its turn at a period of isolation and higher exposure in the window setting and then returning to respond against the other works in the main gallery space.

Exhibiting artists: Les Biggs, Micheal Hazell, Chris Burns, Chris Gee, Jaime Valtierra, Edward Blake
