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.
