The bodies in Leah Yerpe’s large-scale works are multiplied in different poses, twisting, floating and falling on a ground purged of contextualizing marks. The models are not posed and have free reign to move in an immediate, improvised dance. This looseness contrasts with a fastidious drawing technique, wherein the bodies are captured as if formal elements in a collage.
Yerpe sees the figures as transformed from free individuals into symbolic ones, akin to the transformation of human experience in mythology and religion. The influence of mythology is often hinted at in the titles, though the work is not a direct illustration of the stories. Rather, the artist is after that kernel at the heart of the story, the core that will always resonate human experience.

The scale of Jenny Morgan’s works amplifies the intimate relationship her audience has with each painting and helps to create a larger-than-life version of her subjects. Morgan builds on the technical intricacies of her hyperrealism by wearing down, scrubbing away or painting over many of the features of her subjects. For the artist, wearing away at the subjects is at times an emotional roller coaster that is derived from the personal relationship and feelings she has towards the painting’s subject.
The figures “are naked and frontal, their explicit bareness tempered with raw fragility and meditative strength. Embodying the psycho-social dichotomy that often exists in the artist’s canvases, they appear to occupy their own realm, contemplating themselves and their bodies, and seeking balance between the id and the super-ego.”
