That Mortal Coil:
Rebuking the Ideal in Contemporary Figurative Art
May 11 - June 29, 2013
Opening reception, Saturday, May 11, 8-10pm

Artists included in this exhibition:  
Seth Alverson (Houston), R.E. Cox (Dallas), Brian K. Jones (Dallas), Denise Prince (Austin), Ari Richter (New York), Nina Schwanse (New Orleans/Los Angeles) and Taro-kun (Yokohama, Japan)

Our predominant cultural preoccupation with beauty & physical perfection has led a number of contemporary artists to confront and even turn the tables on idealization in regards to the human body.  This group exhibition at CentralTrak reveals the frailty & failure of flesh.  By refusing to honor Western society’s prescribed aesthetic standards, apologetic modesty or polite behavior, these artists become activists in a dynamic form of social protest.  Rather than a rejection of beauty - these artworks generously search for beauty in the varied spectrum of the human condition.Gallery Hours:

Sat., 12 - 5pm
By appointment: 214-824-9302
