Mnemosyne – Opening Reception Feb. 21 at LuminArte

He Si'en - Experience Series -  Is said to be beautiful - 3 -120X70cm

LuminArte presents Mnemosyne, a celebration of contemporary figurative art.

Both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Dream-FinalSmall

In Greek mythology, Mnemosyne was the personification of memory in Greek mythology. She was a Titaness, the daughter of Uranus and Gaia; and through her bond with Zeus, she was known for being the mother of the nine Muses. The exhibition, Mnemosyne is a sequel to the 2014 international figurative exhibition, Muse; and in this selection, the artwork encompasses the full spectrum of figuration, including Art Nouveau, Pop Art, Realism, Surrealism, Expressionism and Synthetic Cubism in the media of photography, sculpture, drawing and painting.

For many, figurative art evokes a certain kind of sentiment or emotional response. We are inspired by our memories and experiences, even in their abstraction; since the human brain tends to reconstruct the events of one’s life into an overall gestalt or narrative perception. We cannot help but relate our subjective experience to something tangible; and the most physical, personal reference is our own body. We relate to each other in a similar way, finding common connections by nurturing a sense of empathy. Figurative art can inspire this concept of connectivity, which draws upon our memories, our emotions and our life experiences. How we relate to art together as an audience can inspire social, political and cultural movements, yet can alternately restrict popular sentiment, as witnessed in the use of figurative art by totalitarian regimes and through other forms of propaganda. In this exhibition, we strive to free ourselves from restrictions and to view the liberating potential of art through the imitation of existence as inspired by the human form.
