In this gallery I plan to show examples of sculptures that exemplify NonWestern artwork, as well as showing that the human figure can be expressed in non traditional ways. The interpretation of the human figure in african artwork is one that I find to be the most unique. These pieces that have been selected caught my attention for a few key reasons. The human form in relation to the face is primarily displayed as masks, and worn in ritual ceremonies. It was interesting to find out that most masks were destroyed after they were used, and I think it says something about the importance and value that is placed on each piece. The other pieces in this exhibit show that the human form is emphasized in key areas to relate to a certain emotion or task. The human form can be interpreted in so many different ways that I believe it's one of the most expressive ways to produce art. Even in my own work I often find myself referencing African artwork of the human figure to then express key ideas and an overall sense of culture.
