The concept of the “nude” lies at the center of this exhibition. The artists express the aesthetic of the body through nude figures while hinting to authentic, humble, even crude qualities through the body. Behind the exposed nude figures and facial expressions are depictions of unaltered worlds and emotions.  
The artists examine the inside and outside phenomenon of the painted object through representations of the body. The inside of the human body is a figurative characterization while the outside is a concept that transcends the image, crossing over from the figurative to the abstract. This exhibition displays the works of five artists, attempting to guide the viewer into the creative perspective and examine how the ideas of the work are constructed and realized. From specific, realistic depictions of the human body to the forms and concepts that the artists investigate through body paintings and portraits, these works are metaphors of the artists’ state of mind towards environmental and social changes.
