Figure This! will bring together the work of a group of UK and international figurative artists to Thames-Side Studios Gallery. Their work is underpinned by the universal importance and immediacy of the human figure: we recognise faces, connect to colour, like making handprints. The selection focuses on powerful and coherent work, where there is real engagement with the materials. Where involvement with the pigment coexists with thought-provoking subjects making both mutually enriching and the result hugely evocative.

Figure This! aims to be a reference in the visual arts as well as a lot of fun. It fills a demand for contemporary figuration to be part of serious and yet accessible conversation – please come and join in. For more information go to

Figure This! is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
