So my buddy Richard Morris is participating in a show of the human figure at James Gray Gallery in Santa Monica and I wanted to spread the word. It has quite a group of talented and diverse artists participating. I posted their press release below.
EM.BOD.Y at Bergamot station
A POP-UP SHOW
EM.BOD.Y – VERB: BE AN EXPRESSION OF OR GIVE A TANGIBLE FORM TO (AN IDEA, QUALITY OR FEELING)
Nine emerging artists are staging a group pop-up show for one night only on Saturday July 21st, 2012, from 5-9pm at James Gray Gallery, Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave #D4, Santa Monica. This show has been made possible through donations on Indiegogo.
EM.BOD.Y is an artist-organized show featuring work across diverse media, which explores ideas around representation and the human form. At its core, the term figurative art refers to figure-based representation but, as the body of work in this show is evidence, the premise of a figure is often the only element that certain figurative work has in common with each other. The human figure has been a central focus in art throughout history, and today is no different; the urge to record, invent, and manipulate the human image continues to inspire artists.
