Jay Etkin Gallery / 942 S. Cooper St. August 3, 2018 - August 31, 2018
Roy Tamboli, Juan Rojo, and Mark Landis, among others
A group show of paintings and sculptures will be on display for the month of August at the Jay Etkin Gallery, from August 3rd until August 31st.
Female Form explores the way the female body is glorified, fractured, obfuscated, multiplied, and rebuilt through the artist’s gaze. Some of the earliest art forms depicted the female body: the goddess figure, Mary, and so on, and it continues to be one of the most pointed subjects of art. Still, with so much artistic attention on the female body, there is no doubt that it holds mystery and controversy even today. This show coincides with the opening of AWAKEN space + shop, located within the gallery, which is a women’s health and creativity focused space for workshops and groups.
Featured works range from traditional to contemporary, formalist to tribal.
