CORPUS ET PARTES
December 7, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - January 3, 2024 @ 12:00 pm
Corpus et Partes
by Henry Falzon
Opening on Thursday 7th December from 7.30pm onwards
In his solo exhibition titled “Corpus et Partes,” Henry Falzon embarks on a fresh theme and medium in his artistic journey. Widely recognized for his pastel works, primarily featuring landscapes, Falzon now guides the audience on a new trajectory—an exploration of the human body, or more precisely, various body parts.
Life often has its peculiar ways of determining our next steps, and due to an unfortunate episode, the artist found himself spending several months in hospital wards, surrounded by the fragility of ‘body parts’ in their most vulnerable states. This experience left him with no opportunity to seek out inspiring landscapes, but it opened the door to a new source of inspiration—the human body.
This marked the artist’s progression within his artistic repertoire, where he presents a study of different body parts, each unique in its depiction, ranging from the serene to the whimsical. The medium used for the majority of the works is oil. Additionally, the artist is presenting a series of limited edition hand-inked mezzotints prints. Some of the works take on a playful dimension through the inclusion of props, adding depth and complexity to the pieces. The artist views this body of work as a stepping stone toward his ultimate goal of integrating the human figure into his hallmark landscape compositions.
