About the show

Since the arrival of abstract art, the term figurative often represents any form of modern art that retains strong references to the real world and human figure in particular. Figurative art can also reflect the cultural values of a particular time and come in forms of sculpture, portraiture, genre painting and with religious or mythical themes.

In an enlightened usage, the word ‘nude’ carries no uncomfortable implication as the vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and helpless figure, but rather a balanced, prosperous and confident figure. Also, this sensitive and controversial subject should not be portrayed as objects, but instead as evocative, stimulating works of art.

Every person has a sense of desire and craves for something that he does not own and hopes for an outcome from it. This feeling surfaces in many areas of a person’s life, from the philosophical to the emotional. Often when a person yearns for something, they will take action to acquire their aims.

Inspired from a private viewing of an astute collector from a royal family, Private Affairs present works in the range from figures, narration, expressive thoughts, nudity and secret desires. This exhibition will be held from 13 May through 27 May 2011 at Galeri Chandan.
