"The Figure Has Soul questions whether in animate objects of clay and wood can project emotions. Figurative art relates closely to what we see in ourselves and projects that in whatever medium it takes form.
Whether we see soul or a spirit within, we are drawn to it as a tangible mirror of self.

In each figure, no matter what medium, there is a narrative which captures our imagination and makes us contemplate our thoughts about life, politics and social issues. This truth reveals the power of the figure and why this exhibit is so compelling, intriguing and just plan fun."
