Brought together to showcase their explorations in portraiture and reflective consciousness, the Hyde Art Gallery’s second exhibition of the Fall 2022 semester, The Living Hand, presents the works of two San Diego artists in conversation. Vicki Walsh’s paintings and Gail Schneider’s sculptures establish a repertoire of provocative, sensuously surfaced forms and character narratives to investigate the human body as visual language and to explore the mysticism surrounding identity. Modeled and rendered through a historical lens of antiquity and classical treatment of media, both artists are drawing upon fundamentalist ideals of portraiture, spanning global traditions, to address important structures of modern society utilizing surrealist, often enigmatic figures.
