Catriona Grant, Untitled, from "The Examination Room", 2003

The works in this exhibition articulate a multiplicity of viewpoints and concepts that reflect the active spirit of inquiry found throughout the arts community. Overall, they establish that there is a diversity and quality of the methods, media, and concepts incorporated in art based on statements about the part of the human anatomy known as the breast.

Judy Polstra, “Judy's Biological Clock”, 2003

This exhibition, focusing on breasts, is not dominated by any one mode of thought or handling, nor is its production limited to a few styles or schools of working. Multiplicity and experimentation in form, concept, and execution marks the exhibition as a whole. In the chosen works, the breast form has been visually explored for its function, its inherent beauty, as iconography for gender specific politics, as a vessel for disease, as a curvilinear line, and/or as a narrative.
