The Human Presence in Art
Portraiture, figure studies, and genre paintings have long been staples of art production. At their best, as in all great art, the subject matter is just a vehicle for a far deeper expression of feeling or thought. While abstractions, still lives, and landscapes may or may not directly reference human beings or their influence on the world around them, they can be quite revealing of the artists' inner worlds. Thus, I think it's safe to say all art inherently expresses the human presence. So, whether showing the inside, outside, or both, this is an exhibit of a broad range of humanistic expression.
