PAINTING THE FIGURE
Apr 4 - 24, 2021
Following on from the exhibition ‘The Figure in Contemporary Art’ in 2017, Gallery Rosenfeld is opening ‘Painting the Figure’ which will feature works by 8 artists hailing from 8 different countries. Each artist has, for very different reasons, made the figure the major protagonist in their works.
 
The history of western art is based on ‘humanism’ and thus portraying the figure has been a con- tinuum throughout the centuries and artists have continually found new ways of looking at the figure and thereby talking about the human condition. Our epoch is naturally no different and after many years when both ‘painting” and ‘figuration’ were outside the art world debate, both have recently, once more, assumed a role of protagonist in the contemporary art discorse. All of the 8 painters included in the exhibition have found a particular way to paint the figure without falling back on typically ‘realistic’ tropes.

THE LANDSCAPE : FROM THE EXTERIOR TO THE INTERIOR
May 6 - Jun 12, 2021
From its inception in 2010, gallery rosenfeld has always been interested in the genres which have defined art history and how they continue to provide inspiration for contemporary artists. Although the ‘portrait, ‘still life’ and ‘landscape’ still have a relevance, there is very little critical attention on these supposedly “outdated” subjects. The only exception to this is the portrait, which has recently assumed a renewed predominance.
