False Anatomies presents the diverse work of three artists dealing with the fabrication of the physical and the sometimes uncomfortable or humorous way that objecthood and illusion relate to each other. Their work commonly shifts attention to the importance of relationships between colors and textures. Paint is used as a structural element, hinting at the fiction of objects and the elusiveness of the figure, while color may be extracted entirely to highlight its indexical properties. Figures may only loosely or rarely be seen but in the case of all three artist’s work, an interest in the mystery of a kind of corpus suggests subtle overlaps.
