The human presence is integral to all of the work in this exhibition. All of the works are metaphors for the human figure and lean towards the minimal. For the most part, the works are life-size or human in their proportions; the traditional sculptural elements of the solid and the void are not relevant to this sculpture. The works are object-like and self contained and of non traditional materials. These materials are of a temporal nature and further enhance the human reference. This is the first show of the series The Figure, 5 Aspects.Includes the work of Sydney Blum, Nancy Cohen, Petah Coyne, Pam Glick, Scott Richter, and Ed Visser.This exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with contributions by Alison Weld
