Open October 21, 2020 through January 23, 2021 at the Racine Art Museum (RAM), Silhouette: Capturing the Human Form in Contemporary Prints and Art Jewelry features work drawn from the museum's permanent collection that explores the human form as a compositional element, storytelling device, or representation of an idea.
While prints and jewelry may not seem like obvious way to explore the body, both can reflect the figure in two dimensions. Unlike traditional silhouettes, some of the works included in this exhibition are more detailed, a practice that adds qualities of character and personality. Similarly, an artist's choice of material can shape impressions of what is being depicted. For example, the colorful, textured figures represented in the jewelry of artist Joyce Scott are juxtaposed with flat, black and white prints of fragmented figured by Michael Mazur, expanding ideas about the human condition or the body as a conveyor of meaning.
