New York Artists Equity Association is pleased to present our latest juried group exhibition, “Recumbent: The Art of Lying.” The show, juried by the founder of Two Coats of Paint, Sharon Butler, artist Judy Glantzman, and figurative artist and art writer Daniel Maidman, features over 20 artworks, all of which focus on the reclining body, one of the most popular and ubiquitous figurative positions in art history. This visual motif is firmly embedded within both Western and Eastern traditions, conjuring up a wealth of associations, which can vary greatly in meaning depending on time, place, and context. Each of the artworks selected for this exhibition successfully re-invents and re-evaluates the trope of the reclining figure. The featured artworks explore a range of themes, including pleasure and sensuality, such as Tiantian Ma’s “Jackie With My Painting.” Others display unflinching, subversive examinations of culturally ingrained iconography originating from religion, mythology, and antiquity such as Manju Shandler’s “Medusa Column.” Also on exhibit are contemporary recontextualizations and reinventions of the classic pose, as  seen in Rachael Warner’s “The Hostess,” and much more. Brought together by the unifying theme of the body in repose, the artworks in “Recumbent: The Art of Lying '' create a comprehensive survey to how a single gesture is able to encompass and convey a complex and nuanced collection of cultural ideas and attitudes.
