Figuratively Speaking

Group exhibition based on the subject of numbers in contemporary art. As the title suggests, the exhibition could be mistaken for a traditional group show of reclining nudes and other effigies rendered perhaps in bronze or charcoal. However the title's double entendre reveals the simple and complex use of numerals. The artists adopt a universal language that the viewer will visually decipher and conceptually decode. The works in the exhibition range from basic counting systems to technological advancements that comment on the role of numerals within a developed society.
