Images of the body and its variety of gestures, forms, and attitudes are used in art to express or represent many different aspects of human nature and behavior. When an artist portrays the human body, the image is not a strict imitation of nature but has been interpreted to express an idea. Even artworks in which the body seems true to nature are often idealized or abstracted. An artist might soften and romanticize the body, present it in a stark, sober, or humorous way, or charge it with erotic overtones. The body can be a starting point from which the artist proceeds to create an image that bears little resemblance to it.
This new series of paintings by Darrell Hagan examine how the body has served as a means for artistic expression. The surreal and humorous works on view show the various ways in which the body is idealized, abstracted, eroticized and interpreted in art.
