The 21st century has heralded a shift in the way the art world perceives
representational art. Figurativism, neglected for most of the 20th century, now
celebrates its glorious return. And as the figurative art has seen its renaissance,
consequently the human form as a subject has regained importance.
Inquiries into body identity and image, the intersection between humans and
technology and humanity overall are increasingly present in our daily lives.
Although most artists no longer place their figures in front of ancient ruins nor
make mythological references, the human form has never stopped intriguing us.
The variety of approaches to figurative art with the main focus on the human
figure is immense. At Untitled Factory gallery we hope to introduce you to the
various approaches to figurative work as part of our temporary exhibits.
