2013

$1,400

About

This classically painted figure study demonstrates the artists understanding of the human figure. A study for a series of larger paintings based on motion capture studios. Here the model is placed in a contrived position on a midcentury modern chair surrounded by props used in the motion capture process. Andrew S. Conklin Maro on Chrome & Yellow Vinyl Modern Side Chair, 2016 oil on panel 18h x 13w in 45.72h x 33.02w cm Motion Capture Paintings, Chicago My recent painting series describes the reality of motion capture environments by showing the interplay between female athletes and male technicians. These paintings are meant to explore conventions of female representation in Western figurative art and to contrast this past practice with the contemporary imagery of that subject via computer-based image technology. This project was instigated by a number of things: first, by my abiding interest in depicting the human form in paint, as I find its versatility in a design, its invitation to empathy, and its difficulty, to be something worth attempting to depict with success. In addition, my curiosity regarding the new ways to depict the form using electronic technology seem to challenge to the traditional methods I rely upon, and I wanted to comment on the similarities and differences between the studios of the painters and the technicians. In this way, I aim to continue my investigation into what I see as the contrasting quality of human nature, and symbolically represent opposites such as mind and body, analog and digital, realism and idealism, terrestrial and the transcendent. Andrew S. Conklin is a figurative painter. He holds an MFA from the Academy of Art University, and studied painting at the National Academy of Design in New York City with Harvey Dinnerstein and Ronald Sherr, receiving additional instruction from portraitist Aaron Shikler and painter and illustrator David Levine. Conklin's figurative paintings have been exhibited throughout the USA and have won him a number of major awards, including a Julius Hallgarten Prize at the National Academy Annual Exhibition, The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and grants from both the E.D. and George Sugarman Foundations. He has shown work at the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, The Terra Museum of American Art, and at Fairfield University. Conklin has taught graduate students at the New York Academy of Art and undergraduates at Parsons School of Design in NYC, and in Chicago at Harrington College of Design Harold Washington College Flashpoint Chicago, and the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. The artist's work has been published in New American Paintings, Nos. 29 and 83, from Open Studios Press, and he has authored articles for the Artists Magazine and other periodicals. His work is represented by Gallery Victor Armendariz in Chicago.
