'A Body of Work' - first showing

A selection of my work involving the human form starting with a drawing and prints from 1971/72 on Foundation Course at Bolton Art College. These were a development from drawing the life model as she walked round the room - very challenging!
Recent work - a slightly padded panel free-drawn on the sewing machine from lots of pencil and pen drawings of 2 minute poses of the life model. This piece references my stage costume work because the fabric used is 'Nude Net' which is used as a panel in a costume to look as though you can see bare skin.
Made last week - an experiment in construction. Machine embroidered panels, reminiscent of bodice panels from costume making, are seamed together to create a random form.

7 artists: Sue Lancaster, Jennifer Shonk, Jo Owen, Ken Jones, Paul Forster, Sam Dexter and Dionne Swift, are showing their own personal responses to working with the human form. The exhibition continues 11 to 4 each day until Friday 30th March. Further developments with possibly additional artists will be shown at KIAC, Sheffield later in the year.
