Lumenhouse exhibition space is pleased to present Corporeality. Co-curated by Aurora Robson and Mariko Tanaka, this exhibition features works by four emerging figurative artists: Katharyn Laranger, John Nissenbaum, Emily Orling, and Stephen Workman.

The work in Corporeality examines states of the physical self through transfiguration and metamorphosis of the corporeal body. Katharyn Laranger’s works on paper veil a seething emotional intensity in her intricate layering of women’s bodies. Jon Nissenbaum’s oil painting, Shreveport Woman, renders a real life new story into a haunting modern day portrait. Emily Orling’s darkly evocative work explores the synergy of Siamese twins in luminous mystery. Stephen Workman singular portraits of Medusa and entwined bodies explore physical movements of the body.
