The Feldman Gallery + Project Space invites Kristan Kennedy, Visual Art Curator at PICA (Portland Institute for Contemporary Art), as curator of Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.

Featuring work by international artists Amy Bessone, Grant Barnhart, Kaye Donachie, Merlin James, Tala Madani, Elena Pankova and Norbert Schwontkowski, Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death. offers a contemporary look at figurative painting styles.

“To be of the body is to be of flesh and bone, but what is it to be a representation or a stand-in for the body? The exhibition gathers together work in which the body is a painting, a shell, a gesture, a cartoon, a mask. Less portrait and more portrayal, the paintings run from the highly sexualized and political to the austere and academic. When together, these pieces represent the kind of pictorial freedom ushered in by post-modernism, and furthermore, the figure post-Picabia,” explains curator Kristan Kennedy.
