Meta Meta Meta LLC is pleased to present How to Draw The Human Figure, a group exhibition with works by Angela Conant, GaHee Park and Sophy Naess, curated by Guy Ben-Ari and Leah Wolff. Through the lens of a semiotic scope, the show presents three different answers to its title through the varied manifestations of a sign: as icon (Gahee Park), index (Angela Conant) and symbol (Sophy Naess). Park’s paintings directly depict her subject matter, drawing a physical resemblance between image and meaning. Conant’s paintings signify the body indexically. They depict collections of partial organs (fingers, knuckles) whose position gradually accumulate into a face-like mass, forming a corollary picture. Naess’ drawings and prints (from which the title of the exhibition is borrowed) remove the figural image from its context, functioning symbolically as text.
