The subject of the human figure in art is sometimes a difficult topic to approach from a gallery perspective. Depictions of the body carry a huge significance throughout many chronological periods of art history, as figurative art has always been the most immediate way for artists to address the human condition.
Floren Gallery are pleased to present âFigure', our own careful take on this diverse subject. After much debate and consideration, we include the work of multiple artists. Floren will touch on the classical nude with timeless works by renowned figurative artist David Knight; world famous artists Melissa Mailer Yates and Katya Gridneva will bring a touch of sophistication to the show; Nina Ribeiro's precise contemporary figures are sure to please, as are Paul Lemmon's seductively flamboyant women.
We feel that each singular piece of artwork selected for âFigure' adds something small, yet something very timeless and significant, to the complicated jigsaw which is contemporary figurative art.
