cubic life drawing
two days ago i went to a life drawing session, the first i have been to for roughly 13 years. having experimented with cubic still life i was keen to explore cubic life drawing, the realisation of the human form… in boxes!
this is the most striking piece from the session. despite the angular treatment i find a good deal of grace and humanity in the pose. it has a quiet architectural aura, like an crane on a construction site at night. it occurred to me, as i was visualising the way the left leg box and the lower torso box intersected, that i could draw live from the nude using a laptop.
this is an idea i hope to explore later on.
