I spend most of my day on social media working for a group of figurative artists who are constantly being banned because, many times, the nude comes into play into their paintings. Some of the artwork is so realistic that the bots can't tell the difference between a painting and a photograph. Figurative artwork varies from hyperrealism to abstracts. I don't blame the robots for thinking a painting by Anne-Christine Roda of a full frontal nude is not a photograph or a hyperrealism painting by Eloy Morales is not a real floating baby.
The isolation of artists is very evident in their daily lives, working in their studios alone with their thoughts and creativity. Sometimes the isolation can’t be avoided, but becomes part of the narrative of the artwork.
