Go Figure

Go Figure is a group exhibition exploring figure and featuring new pieces from Brian Burke, Michael Harrington and Marcus Jones.

In contrast to abstract art, figurative art is a diverse category for artworks that represent recognizable objects in the world. It ranges from realism to nearly abstract. The artists included in this exhibition explore human and animal figures. Through figurative narratives, the painters Brian Burke and Michael Harrington consider basic questions of the human condition and comment on contemporary society. Marcus Jones’ aluminum and bronze sculptures of human and animal skulls mark a shift in his sculptural practice and employ the lost wax process. Unlike his representational stone work, these new works are rooted in representation but also explore abstraction, fragility and decay.

Images of Michael Harrington's new paintings coming soon.
