Exhibition Catalog Essay Excerpt:
"Of course, change takes time, and while the change has been coming on, the artists in The Way of Flesh Part II have been working: working hard. As a result, each one has been chosen by Fatemeh Burnes because his or her work has an aura of expressive mastery. All the frustration, all the effort, all the humility related to the long haul of learning to render the figure is at the service of one thing: expression. The artists whose works you are about to see are here because they have earned the right to be here.
Each one, each individual artist, has something to say. And they all say it beautifully: with the power and conviction that comes from passion-fueled effort over time."
