Essay by Richard Flood
While the early 1980s figurative impulse is more readily thought of in relation to the neo-expressionist painters, many sculptors also returned to the figure for its expressive potential. In common with neo-expressionist painting, these figurative sculptures look to the representational human form for its psychic, confrontational impact. Artists featured: John Ahearn, Lynda Benglis, Jonathan Borofsky, Louise Bourgeois, William Crozier, Jedd Garet, Robert Graham, Barry LeDoux, Robert Longo, Robert Morris, Jud Nelson, Manuel Neri, Tom Otterness, Judy Pfaff, Italo Scanga, George Segal, Joel Schapiro, Judith Shea, Martin Silverman, Paul Thek, Daisy Youngblood.
