HEADS UP! The Human Head Interpreted by 7 Sculptors
a new leaf gallery | sculpturesite is pleased to announce the exhibition HEADS UP! The Human Head Interpreted by 7 Sculptors, on view daily from June 9 through September 3, 2012.Extended through Oct. 3rd. An opening reception will take place June 9 from 2-5pm.
We are delighted to present a new group exhibition of human heads and torsos by seven sculptors in wood, ceramic and mixed media. Featured artists are: John Atkin, Mark Chatterley, Nina Lyons, Mike Moran, Tony Natsoulas, Carol Schwartz and Kathy Venter.
As repositories of all five senses and the brain, our heads are the receptors and emitters of most of human communication. Emotions and personalities are best expressed facially, which may explain why many portraits have been reduced to heads and torsos since antiquity. “In this exhibition, we bring together an extraordinary range of heads depicted by seven sculptors: from poetic abstractions, to naturalistic portraits, to biting caricatures,” says owner-curator Brigitte Micmacker.
