Details:Rather than rendering faces and the figure in a realistic manner, the artists included in this exhibition chose to create constructed characters to explore how we navigate through personal and cultural experiences. Character Studies brings together figurative works from the MMFA’s permanent collection that are cartoon-like, caricatures, or even grotesque in style to question, and sometimes emphasize, the characteristics and emotions that make us human. For example, working with the human figure enabled artist Philip Guston (American, 1913–1980) to craft a narrative while evoking a sense of the surreal and the comical. Through cartoon-like figures he told stories rich in meaning, often touching on the absurd and, sometimes, on the nightmarish. In his lithograph Curtain (1980), the odd, disembodied heads form a strange landscape under a parted curtain and perhaps allude to the importance of looking past the facade to the reality “behind the curtain” in any situation.
