Jamie Coreth, <em>Portrait of  Charlotte</em>, Oil on Linen, 2017

Ringing in the new year with a bang, the Florence Academy of Art U.S. (FAA) is presenting "12x12, A Portrait Exhibition" through March. Held at the FAA U.S.’s MANA Contemporary location, this exhibition will showcase 12”x12” portraits by some of the worlds most prominent figurative artists, including Jamie Coreth, Kate Lehman, Colleen Barry, Denis Sarazhin, Travis Schlaht, Mario Robinson, Yuriy Ibragimov, and Eudald de Juana, among others. 

From the press release: 

 

“The basis for this exhibition is both to showcase each of the visions of these individual artists and to show the diversity of expression possible within this very specific genre. In an effort to best express the contrasts in the conception and design of these artworks the works themselves are of the same scale, 12x12 inches.” says Stephen Bauman, Director of Anatomy and Ecorche at The Florence Academy of Art U.S. and curator of the exhibition. ”The artworks in this exhibition will show us the common features of their subjects, sometimes through a broad handling of their chosen medium and at other times through a finely wrought technique that reflects their academic training. Whatever approach the artist chooses these artworks present to us the vivid sense of a real person’s presence.”
