Donna Huddleston: Figuring the Naked Body

30 October 2014 : 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Nakeds exhibition provides the setting for two dynamic sessions that explore different ways of figuring the naked body.  Materials, including graphite, watercolour, paper and collage, are provided.  

23 October: Drawing from Life.  A life model strikes a range of vibrant and surprising poses to instigate personal responses to the naked body.

30 October: Drawing from ‘The Nakeds’.  Over 70 works, executed in a range of media and dating from 1912 (the drawings of Egon Schiele) to the present day (works by Chantal Joffe, Enrico David and Nicola Tyson) provide inspiration to figure the human form.

 

Donna Huddleston recently conceived Witch Dance which was performed at Drawing Room in 2013. Born 1970 Belfast, Ireland, she was raised in Australia and now lives and works in London. She studied at the National School of Art and graduated in Stage Design at The National Institute for Dramatic Arts in Sydney. In 2010, Huddleston was nominated for the Jerwood Drawing Prize and is included in Phaidon's new Vitamin D2 - New Perspectives in Drawing.
