12×12, A Portrait Exhibition
Through March 23, 2018
Mana Contemporary (New Jersey)
The Florence Academy of Art U.S. (FAA) is excited to present “12×12, A Portrait Exhibition.” Held at the FAA U.S.’s MANA Contemporary location, this exhibition will showcase 12” x 12” portraits by more than 30 of today’s leading figurative artists. Featured artists include Jamie Coreth (work featured above), Kate Lehman, Colleen Barry, Denis Sarazhin, Travis Schlaht (work featured below), Mario Robinson, Yuriy Ibragimov, and Eudald de Juana (work featured at bottom), to name just a few.
“The basis for this exhibition is both to showcase each of the visions of these individual artists and to show the diversity of expression possible within this very specific genre. In an effort to best express the contrasts in the conception and design of these artworks, the works themselves are of the same scale, 12 x 12 inches,” says Stephen Bauman, Director of Anatomy and Ecorche at The Florence Academy of Art U.S. and curator of the exhibition.
“The artworks in this exhibition will show us the common features of their subjects,” Bauman says, “sometimes through a broad handling of their chosen medium and at other times through a finely wrought technique that reflects their academic training. Whatever approach the artist chooses, these artworks present to us the vivid sense of a real person’s presence.”
“12×12, A Portrait Exhibition” and all of The Florence Academy of Art U.S. exhibitions, lectures, and events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://www.florenceacademyofart.com.
