From the grace and beauty of the human figure to the personal detail of a portrait, Humankind aims to capture the human experience through the physical form. Humankind explores not only depictions of the human body through traditional portrayals but also art that represents the human condition and the essentials of existence: emotions, mortality, struggles and triumphs among the myriad of experiences all of humankind encounters.
