Human Form in Art

The artwork in this show consists of enormous diversity in materials, techniques, beliefs, and notions of beauty. The artists that created these objects have used a variety of techniques and mediums. Some appear realistic in execution and others stylized or abstract. Comparing objects that have been made by different artists of the same culture can reveal how figurative art often reflects cultural influences.
The human body has always been an inspiration. It has become one of the highest forms of fine art to be made, studied, remade and restudied. The human form is “unceasingly beautiful”, complex in form and shape, and undeniably remarkable. It is one of the very few things that all of us have in common. Finding artistic and beauty in the human form is only natural and this show will showcase some of the best work that represents this notion, by artists from around the globe.
