Victoria Topping’s illustrative prints are bold and brave. Setting figures against vibrant backdrops, Topping combines block work with pattern and shape to create rhythmic prints. Aphrodite exemplifies Topping’s mastery of shape, as the figure in the piece radiates power and charisma.
Rozalina Burkova’s minimal palette underlines the narrative in each of her prints. Burkova’s use of typography imparts a narrative in each print, usually centred around the strength of female relationships. The artistic duo Faile also include typography in their figurative prints, framing the figure with words, phrases and slogans to add layering to their art.
Figurative prints are pieces of art that primarily focus on the subject of the human body. The representation of the figure dates back to Ancient Greece, where the portrayal of the figure was initially used to convey power, prestige or beauty. From this point onwards, the representation of the figure has been a constant motif in art history, from the Renaissance art of Titian, to the 20th century paintings and sculptures of Schiele, Freud and Giacometti.
The representation of a figure in art typically assumes the focus and subject matter of the piece. Whether clothed or unclothed, figurative art allows for an in-depth response to the human body, capturing movement, character and likeness.
