Configuration explores a contemporary take on the use of the figure in painting, video and sculpture with works by nine woman artists:
Day + Gluckman bring together a group of artists whose work touches upon the figure, both objectively and subjectively. This much appropriated subject matter is given a new lease of life through the selection of artists and work. These artists take the human condition and lay it open for scrutiny. In some instances the subject matter is simply an opportunistic opening for an exploration of paint and surface - for others it is a self reflective process. This exhibition is about observation - of people, of media, of subjective standpoints and objective analysis.
