The human figure has been central to art ever since people began painting. Providing the literal edge between a person’s physical and mental realms, the human figure has become a significant form for artists to make their interior realities apparent to us. Some artists use a processes of representation and elaboration, procure symbols to make their interior worlds visible to others, or infer art history while replicating the world in which they live. By presenting Lin Fischer’s newest paintings, the exhibition considers how traditional interpretations of the body continue to convey narrative, content and also enhance awareness and engagement with lived experience.
Standing, Walking, Sitting and Lying Down online exhibit opens April 16 through May 21, 2021.
