VISAGE showcases recent work by seven contemporary artists who variously and idiosyncratically explore the face, portraiture (including self-portraiture), the figure and anthropomorphism as primary subjects in their current practice. Individual approaches to these subjects and themes range from the geometric and pattern-based to the semi-abstracted, organic, wilfully distorted and surreal.
