on show now:





An exhibition by Michael Haggie and Catherine Macdonald celebrating the classical 
art of life drawing

What is life drawing? Life drawing is the activity of drawing live, 
typically nude, models.Life drawing is a very private but not prurient 
activity.  It takes place in a quiet studio room.  The nude body is 
there to be discovered by drawing unashamedly.  The body is acknowledged 
and celebrated.  It takes place where artists are recorders and 
appreciators with each pursuing their own perspective.

Life drawing used to be an essential part of an art school’s programme 
but nowadaysit is more or less obsolete.  There is now a diverse range 
of activities in art schools from video to installation art, that has 
replaced the idea of studying the model. In life drawing the body of 
the model does not have to conform to celebrity standards of beauty.  
A big older model can be just as beautiful as any slimmer person.  
This aspect of drawing is demonstrated in our work.

In our afternoons of life drawing, we choose to do studied poses of 
the model, with each lasting about half an hour.  In the time the model 
adopts a silence that can be quite powerful and creative.  the model 
takes a short break them resumes a new pose.  It is quite hard work 
staying still for the model.

This is the first show devoted primarily to life drawing for Space 
Gallery.

Viewing until Saturday 16th March
