We all have personal stories to tell. Sometimes even our expressions give away something about ourselves. At other times, an enigmatic gaze or slight smile act as a way to deflect betraying emotion or experience. Regardless of how we relate to others, there are always clues to decipher about a person—either through dress, environment, or simple gestures. In this exhibition, we look at ways in which contemporary artists create narratives, real or metaphorical, about their subjects. Looking at signs in each work of art, either in the setting or in the characters themselves, a plausible story can be pieced together to reveal something about human nature itself. Through photography, painting, prints, and mixed media works, these selections from Cleveland Clinic’s art collection invite viewers to take a closer look at the whole picture.
