“painting the figure”
4me4you visits Gallery Rosenfeld which featured the works of nine artists hailing from nine different countries.
Each artist has, for different reasons, made the figure the major protagonist in their works.
As the art world began to look at areas of the world which had been overlooked by the Western canon, such as Chinese and now African painting, painting the figure started re-gaining importance so much that today figurative painting is the prominent form of artistic expression.
The artists/painters have found a particular way to paint the figure without falling back on typically ‘realistic’ troupes.
Featured Artists: Shiva Ahmadi/ Theodore Axente/ Aramints Blue/ Jose Castiella/ Lu Chao/ Mutaz Elemam/ Alfio Giurato/ Besher Koushaji/ Uthman Wahaab
