Human Clay Revisited
ARTSPACE, | 08/03/2014 : 20/04/2014
The Ropewalk in conjunction with Studio Eleven Gallery in Hull brings to the region professional artists committed to working with figurative subject matter as a central theme in their work. At a time when conceptual art predominates the art scene we show work which validates the continuing and innovative use of the figure in contemporary painting, drawing and printmaking. This show brings together wonderful artists concerned with the human condition portrayed in more "traditional" media. The work was once described in the 1970s by artist Ron Kitaj as "The Human Clay " and we are pleased to be able to confirm in 2014 the relevance of images made from and about people. The exhibition features work by Bren Head, Sally Gatie, Sharon Winter, Neil Moore, Simon Burton, Corrie Chiswell, Stewart Kelly, Jake Attree, David Hancock, Linda Ingham, Steve Whitehead and Laurence Edwards.
