Curator Roxie Warder has brought together the works of six young UK-based artists in an exhibition at London’s Cob Gallery called Go Figure.
As the title suggests, this is an exploration of the human form in various guises. It’s a big, colourful show and a deliberate reaction to what Warder sees as the rather drab state of painting currently on the British contemporary art scene.
“Painting at the moment seems to have gone either highly traditional or quite cold, very minimal and abstract. This has still a lot of abstraction but I think it still holds on to elements of figurative work and I think the artists show that in a new way.”
