The Alberta art market is saturated in landscape paintings that often contain a direct visual link to the region. This makes for an interesting challenge for painters employing the imagery of the human body. The most common inhibitor to the sale of figure paintings is a lack of desire for images of “other people”, i.e. someone the buyer does not know. This shows the false belief that figure painting and portraiture are synonymous.

Barbara Shore’s Freedom is an example of how the scope of figure painting extends beyond portraits. In this mixed media artwork, a faceless woman walks towards the surface of the painting against a blustery wind. By excluding the unique features of this woman’s face, Shore creates a figure that can be anyone. Viewers may recognise a friend or family member in the colour of her hair or the style of her clothes. They may even see a reflection of themselves, marching determinedly onwards in an inhospitable environment.
