I am fascinated by the human body, and in particular how we use it communicate through subtle signals, movements and energy. I have attended dance workshops which focus on this kind of choreography and I wanted to work with these ideas.
I have a large number of life studies from recent years, and I have used these as the basis of my work in this exhibition. I was amazed at how dynamic these initially static poses became when grouped together and overlaid and combined with memory drawings of movement. I have also been inspired by the techniques and drawings of Degas and Rodin, who worked in this way.
The exhibition consists of a selection of drawings and paintings generated by this project. I would like to thank the Dunblane Museum Gallery for the opportunity to show and develop my work.
GREETINGS CARDS AND PRINTS FROM THE EXHIBITION WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE GALLERY AND ONLINE
