Body Language at Saatchi Gallery
Body Language is an exhibition of contemporary figurative work. While Adrian Hamilton snarks in a review for the Independent "presumably the art schools these painters and sculptors went to no longer teach drawing" I'll have to beg to disagree. If you're looking for classical figurative work you won't find it in a contemporary gallery, but you will find an eclectic group of paintings, by emerging or mid career artists exploring the human form....warts and all.
