Expanding beyond the traditional art school still life and figure study, From Life brings together a wide array of artwork drawn or painted from direct observation. From the humble napkin doodle to the polished oil painting, artists with a range of styles and backgrounds consider the people, places, and things around them.
For many of the artists in the show, working from observation is business as usual. For others, it is a practice that exists outside of their primary mode of creation. In any case, the work here demonstrates the artist’s relationship to the immediate world. Whether scrawled in an instant or carefully realized through close inspection, moments are seen, considered, and preserved.
