PAINT BODY PAINT explores the relationship between paint and body, facilitating a dialogue that examines both the historic roots of said relationship and its significance in the contemporary art context. Far from being limited to oil on canvas of the human form the exhibition delves into a variety of possibilities posed by the idea of 'paint', 'body' and the connection between them. From rendering of the flesh to the fleshiness of paint, from human form to human action, from evolution of the medium to rendition of the concept both the paint and the body are respectively questioned, interpreted and reinterpreted as each artist offers their unique vision of this fundamental partnership.
